Treasure Island

Susan T. Aparejo

(Dec.09, / Gingoog City, Philippines)


If only people has no pride,
Life would be so simple,
No more ecstacy of trouble,
No more place to tremble,
No more money to bundle,
and hatred dominates no more!

Pride is the foe of peace,
It kills your simple life in bless,
Pride drives you to want for more,
Even such more is an eye sore,
Don't care to open another evil door,
Refuse to live in a refuge of poor,
Money is such a big lure,
As Pride teaches us of no cure,
Yet pretends to be a modest PURE.!

    I choose the poem pride because it gives me a great lesson.It adapts to myself, cause I myself has high pride.That leads to have a conflict to my friends and my family.For I can't control myself being humble. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

So we'll go no more a-roving
So late into the night,
Though the heart still be as loving,
And the moon still be as bright.

For the sword outwears its sheath,
