Treasure Island

Star Dust

(Uh... For all I know I could have been born in 2111 / Loonytown (It's an awesome place, right between Candyland and the Strawberry Forest))

Love


Searching, Searching… pause,
Oh, wait- I’ve missed it.

It was in the valley of destiny,
Pass the fields of greed,
Lost within memory,
Concoctions of audacity,

It was covered in persistence,
Sprinkled with pleasure,
Written in history as the one and only light,
Many, but not me, passed it for I know of its good deeds,

It was freedom to all,
Long, long ago hidden to life,
Drifting with the winds of hope,
Breaking down the barriers of racism,

It had once filled radiance,
Left none to fall to selfishness or hate,
Lifting those in need,
Not laughing at those with disability,

It’s long gone,
I know of that,
But we can bring it back,
Our drastically cruel world mocks those who try, don’t let it hold you back, fly, higher than the shadows that block your anticipation,
And help me bring back the love that our world so desperately needs.

poet Robert Louis Stevenson

AT last she comes, O never more
In this dear patience of my pain
To leave me lonely as before,
Or leave my soul alone again.... Read complete »
