Treasure Island

Abekah Emmanuel

(12 may 1992 / Ghana, Eastern Region,)

My life

My life is at stake
and my future is in the sky,
Poverty has become my plaque
but no one hears my cry.

I wonder everyday
If my life has a purpose,
but I don't have to delay
for the meaning of life is
life of purpose itself.

Look at life, how unpredictable it is,
sometimes smooth, at times rough,
You rejoice today, tomorrow you mourn,
So I have to be tough
and fight on,
for life is how you make it.

    I must agree with this poem. Funny how so many people talk about helping our fellow man and yet deny them the opportunity to help themselves. Take every opportunity that you can and use it to max advantage. (Report) Reply

    Well written Abekah. If you have the opportunity, you must take it. Too many are, sadly, denied any opportunity. Inequality is man made. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Edmund Spenser

My love is like to ice, and I to fire:
How comes it then that this her cold so great
Is not dissolved through my so hot desire,
But harder grows the more I her entreat?
