Treasure Island

Live Now


Isn't birth precious?

As a child,
You followed your heart
Without much thought
And let your life live:
Without confusion and fear,
With curiousness and alertness,
Not knowing that you don't know much.

There was joy
And enormous spirit
In you.

As an adult,
You are following your mind
To win someone's thought
And let your life live:
With confusion and fear,
Without enthusiasm and feeling,
Not knowing that you are unique.
Working on things,
Knowing, you don't know much.

Heart has become heavy,
Leaving you in melancholy.

Is this the he[art] of living?

There is no joy
In your eyes
And the radiance is lost,
What you had in your birth,
Gift of God.

Take a moment,
Look into your heart,
Stop listening to your thought,
Heart waiting for your YES
To let you know,
You know something unique.
To take your
Passion and ambition,
To the world.

To fade your grudges free
And to let you
be a dynamic You.

There will be happiness
In your journey,
Failures will not stop you,
Success will not leave you alone.
Your eyes will be full
Of radiance and ever be curious.

Be Dynamic
And
Live Now!

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Lawson


The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
