Treasure Island

Life Is Tough


I sometimes think who am I and who is the new me
Could I be the person who I was or will I be repeating history
Why couldn't I go back to being really shy
But I was someone who use to always lie

If i got scared use to try and get away
But now nothing phrases me today
I use to think that nothing else could go wrong
Now I know that's not true and what ever happens I have to stay strong
Sometimes I wish I could go back to the past
So I can get all the memories back
I learnt that if you let everything get you down
You won't live happy and always frown
When everything does get on top
Just forget what your doing and stop
Just think that someone else's life is so much worse
They are thinking the same as you that your living under a curse
But some how that person carries on
Within minuets of positive thinking their worries are gone


If you do have a moment of sorrow
Just think they day will be better tomorrow
This is something I believe
Since I lost my brother on new years eve

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
