Treasure Island

KATHRYN CHOATE


Lost Soul


She walks the streets, lives in a box
Nothing but drug dealers on the whole block

She left her husband and a child
For a life of nothing, running wild

She faces conflicts everyday
Every other week the cops take her away

She prays to God to save her soul
But continues to live in that dirty hole

Then one day she couldn't be found
Everyone was searching, even the town

They found her one sad day floating in the lake
Her soul was not spared, her life she did take

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
