Treasure Island

Haven Leonel

(February 16,1993 / West palm beach)


So many thoughts are going through my mind.

I'm so confused i cant even walk in a straight line.

my hands are bound and my feet are tied,

my mouth is taped and my eyes are blind.

I'm as brain-dead as a man drunk on wine.

My actions, my thoughts, no they cant be mine.

The contract to giving up my soul is signed.

I have a limit on living for my life is timed.

I'm going downhill and i cant go back, i cant rewind

Inside I'm on fire while outside I'm nice and kind,

it hurts but i need to fake a smile and act fine.

I'm forced to live for others to later be left behind.

I'm as forgotten as the past and as speechless as a mime.

i give all that i have to be left without a dime.

this life is like going up a mountain and it isn't worth the climb

I'm climbing for a lost cause, please let me simply close my eyes

wish away my problems, let go, fall, and die.

Poem of the Day

poet James Whitcomb Riley

When the frost is on the punkin and the fodder's in the shock
And you hear the kyouck and gobble of the struttin' turkey cock
And the clackin' of the guineys, and the cluckin' of the hens
