Treasure Island

Now back to reality

It would be nice to have a normal life.
To have real good days not just random days when
you don't think about things and bum yourself out.
I still wonder how i even survive,
i guess its the kids, if only they knew me and
how much i care about them but maybe one day they'll figure it out

and maybe one day they'll tell me about how..
how much they love and they need me around
to read bedtime stories and sing to them loud

til they cant keep their eyes open..
and the last thing they are saying..
i love you goodnight thanks for staying..

please dada... don't ever ever ever leave.....
now back to reality...

its just a dream
a hope, a prayer or a wish
cuz really good things
they don't ever exist

as much as i tried...
i don't know why...
you couldn't think about our life...
i really wouldn't mind if i died.
because now i pretty much feel that way inside
but it doesn't matter just go do what you like.

Poem of the Day

poet Walt Whitman

ARM’D year! year of the struggle!
No dainty rhymes or sentimental love verses for you, terrible year!
Not you as some pale poetling, seated at a desk, lisping cadenzas
