Treasure Island

David Lessard

New beginnings.

The madness is almost over,
just a few days remain;
then we all can start anew,
and play again, the same refrain.

New Year's resolutions,
are gone in a few weeks;
will this be the year,
that new roads we will seek?

Stay on the path forever,
do not waver to one side;
we must face the truth before us,
and longer can we hide.

Face the facts before us,
grab the truth and hold;
forget the many lies,
that since youth, we have been told.

Rise above the mundane life,
that we now are leading;
stop the flowing wounds,
cauterize the bleeding.

Shake the old, begin the new,
become the one you want to be;
bury the old self in the past,
the one that none need see.

    Yes, the madness is almost over - just waiting for the new madness to begin. Nothing really changes. I especially liked the last stanza - best advice. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

So we'll go no more a-roving
So late into the night,
Though the heart still be as loving,
And the moon still be as bright.

For the sword outwears its sheath,
