Treasure Island

Open Your Eyes


As I walk to school in my attire
Hundreds out there are traumatized with dire
As I pace on each step I make
Hundreds fell asleep and will never awake

As I settle down in my cozy room
Hundreds out there have met their doom
As I take out my textbooks to read
Hundreds out there are in need

As I run out for recess, lively and free
Hundreds long for a good life they will never see
As I run back in, filled with thirst
Hundreds of others are in need of water first

As I ponder over the world
Hundreds shattered their lives like a pearl
As I regret on all I took for granted
Hundreds out there, whose lives were fended

poet Sir Walter Raleigh

EVEN such is Time, that takes in trust
Our youth, our joys, our all we have,
And pays us but with earth and dust;
   Who in the dark and silent grave,
