Treasure Island

Marcquiese Burrell

(2/21/1987 / Baltimore, MD)

Please


I know you not trying to take it there
trying to create a problem
lower the volume of the insecurities in your head
You should already know everything is good
I'm taking care of me and living free
I got this on lock, I ain't going stop
So you really should know better than
to think that you could control me, understand?

you want some good loving, that's what i give you
You know, no other, can bring that kind of fire
Whatever you want, i have no problem doing
But you should know that i want to breathe
So, please, back up off of me
And let me be, please

Don't violate my right to have a life
Sometimes i want to explore the world
Drink at the bar, Dance in the club
When it comes to us
Please, don't tell me what to do
If i want to go out and celebrate
You bets believe i won't hesitate
You should think about that the next time
You feel you can control my mind

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Lawson


The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
