Treasure Island

Jennifer Rothgordt


One Wonders


One wonders what the world would do,
If each word spoken, from this point were true.
If every expression of emotion or reason, real!
How would this make mankind feel?
If a childs hunger could be fed by trust.
If respect for women was made a must!
No more hurt, no more pain, no more crime, no more shame.
No more deaths in religions name!
No more acts of desperation!
No more feelings of deep frustration!
Could this heal our global nation? !

    At the school I once went to, they said they would not tolerate abuse and such of which I think u are trying to express. But their discipline is undermined. It does not do good :) and this is a great poem, thank u for sharing.

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
