Treasure Island

My World


Has been shattered....by
words.....bad words
that should have never been spoken …

I walk the beaches looking for a treasure
as I wipe back the tears …
hoping to find something that will
ease my broken heart …
maybe not today....
perhaps tomorrow....
or as many tomorrows there are
in this life time...

Poet's Notes about The Poem

There are times when we become angry- -we regret that first sting of words- -that should never be spoken to one we hold so dear- -yet they burst out like a stream over flowing so fast - -we can, t take the words back- -or venting out loud. I have learned- -it best- to stop before the words have a chance to crush or harm another- calm down- then find a time to communicate with each other once the storm has cleared. We are our own lessons!

It is very nice to think
The world is full of meat and drink,
With little children saying grace
In every Christian kind of place.... Read complete »
