Treasure Island

Desiree Whitamore

mom do you see what you're doing?

look. you don't have to share
what you feel inside.
you don't have to know me
or want me to know its alright.

but i'd thought you'd want to share
whats effecting me too.
you think you know whats best for me?
you don't even know whats best for you.

you're ruining yourself
you're ruining our life
i won't have a mother when i'm older
you'll be so young when you die.

because thats what you're doing
killing yourself for this.
maybe its a habit
but this is when you need to quit.

i'm sure old habits die hard
but you're the one who'll be dying
its stupid what you're doing
i'm too mad to be crying.

how dare you put us in danger?
you're supposed to do whats right
you're a liar, i swear i hate you
i don't want you in my life.

Poem of the Day

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
