Treasure Island

Maxim Muyu

(2nd July / 1981 nairobi)


Myself and I,
Chose the beauty of my own appreciation,
It’s too much of never changing,
Is it much about them?
Or about I,
I don’t know them,
When I’m all-alone,
I find those patterns,
So infinite is the blessing,
My self and my rights,
You are for me,
Fury and agony,
They never worry,
I’m all crying,
Is it agony?
Any man of afflictions like I?

    I just posted a poem kind of addressing the same stuff you are. You might give it a read: 'Because of Me-Me-Me'. I hadn't read your poem until I posted mine. I completely related. I have some of the same afflictions. Some of the same questions. Nice to know one is not alone, isn't it? A world apart yet as close as a thought. Bless you forever.

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Dickinson


"Arcturus" is his other name—
I'd rather call him "Star."
It's very mean of Science
To go and interfere!

I slew a worm the other day—
