Treasure Island

Smirk when it ends

Thinking about what makes us work,
meat, water, love or hate,
i feel like i am part of a cirque,
under water we suffocate.

Life begins with love,
love ends with life,
life ends with death,
death supports life,
as much as a breath
supports ones body.

Water is life, but also death,
air is life, but also death,
sun is life, but also death,
why are we afraid to die then?
Just let the living dance,
and the death sleep!

There is no rightous death,
nor a good one,
death is death,
life is life.
Just smirk when it ends
to enjoy it one last time.

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;
