Treasure Island

Jake Samuelson



Stuck in my room staring at these blank walls before me
I want to scream and shout, but the tortured words wont come out
'I dont trust you' Echoes in the back of my mind
What did i do to deserve this, i'm locked in
I cant escape to get any air, I'm suffocating
Slowly but surely i will die, i need a lifeline
I've had enough, yet i cant speak up
Gagged and bound, my life is decided before me
its although im just along for the ride
Eventually the time will come, i can decide for myself
I wont be forced to obey, i will be free, eventually
I know.. Some day.. It will be true.. I will find a paradise
Unspoiled.. Untouched.. Untainted.. I will live
But for now, im still gagged and bound, still forced to obey
Still beaten till i give in, but i will never surrender
I will never give in, i will never let go of myself
I will never live this down, it will always be there
A scar, a poison flowing through my veins.

Poem of the Day

poet Walt Whitman

ARM’D year! year of the struggle!
No dainty rhymes or sentimental love verses for you, terrible year!
Not you as some pale poetling, seated at a desk, lisping cadenzas
