Treasure Island

Romeo Della Valle

(Ageless / Dominican Republic)

Never Giving Up

Barely conscious
Or hardly caring which way
I face the World,
I take a bolder step,
Traveling steadily
Against the wind
That is sometimes too strong,
An air so cold
That it numbs my senses
Until I feel myself
Turned inside out…

II try to keep the direction
I have set for
So that somehow,
I will arrive somewhere
As I know the path
I have followed
Has brought me
To a better place,
A freer state of mind
Where I will truly
Become myself!

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
