Treasure Island

Glory Toluwalope

Lifes Travesty

You wake up in the bright morning
With the beautiful and colourful flower
Sitting to appreciate the power of nature
Admiring the feel of existence
Combing through your thought
Remembering life is nothing but maze

The melancholic nature of exisitence
Wanting to give up on the mesmirizing things
But the urge to get somthings well utilized
Building up a flustering heart
Thought of giving up to the pleasure
Then you behold the melancholic feeling again

The pace with which the world moves
The race that accompanies it groove
The wish to remain aloof
The sight of you on a cliff
The feel of being in the path that seems rough
The urge to be on a reliable cliff

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
