Treasure Island

My Strenght

Bear faith and strength will come
Seek it and strength will come
Sing, Sing
It’s with strength you belong

I listened as an angel sang her song

Take heed now
My weakness has been your strength
But no more!
For sure!

Take heed now
My kindness you abused at length
But no more!
For sure!

Take heed now
I stopped believing in me
Topped up with your deceiving
I flopped thinking
I was not worthy of receiving
But no more!
For sure!

Behold a stranger came and walked my way
Bringing along her golden sunrays

I found my strength at long last
I found my strength at long last within me
I found my strength at long last to be free
I found my strength at long last, you see!
You are now a thing of the past
‘You, ’ I sing. ‘Are merely an outcast’

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
