Treasure Island

Lorde Zrock


Pellington Road


I make my way down Pellington Road
To take the path that nobody knows
To find something special in the dark
To light up my world with a raging spark
I hope to seek a path diverging from the desperate and poor
To get myself seen with the highest score
To find a lover in the smog
Not for their looks, but for who they are
I expect wealth and fortune to come my way
With every being begging me to stay
To be the apple of everyone's eye
To be adored and to touch the sky
I hope for the best and nothing other
For now I'll have to settle for less
Siting in a pile of hubris taking more than one second guess
I sit here alone willing for this all to be
Whilst others deserving rise and leave me at their feet
Why do I seek what I cannot get
When all I do is sit on my lazy bum and forget
That what I want to obtain
I must get out of strife
And continue on to living my perfectly normal life

Poem of the Day

poet William Wordsworth

I

I AM not One who much or oft delight
To season my fireside with personal talk.--
Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
