Treasure Island

Semblance Of Endurance


Hopes and aspirations continue living through me in
spite of what I am still going through.

Reaching through depths of suffering, I somehow find
my way into expressions of twilight.

Gathering it's stars into memories that I can hold onto,
even in throes of death's existent hold on me, no matter
what I happen to do.

Finally, following movements meant for me in this
empty life, as it continues to move forward without me
in step with it at every turn.

Feeling bereft and lonely, I locate some semblance of
endurance, using it along with the stubbornness of my
Italian soul here on earth for now.

poet Rupert Brooke

If I should die, think only this of me:
That there's some corner of a foreign field
That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
