Treasure Island

Hopeless Heart

(1991 / New Zealand)

Some day


You can never really know a person
Know what they think, know what they do
When no one can see

Behind closed doors people are different,
Behind closed doors people are themselves,
Behind closed doors people are real.

The person no one sees
The person locked away,
Is the person they’re afraid to be

Away from others people do dreadful things,
Away from others people see things differently,
Away from others people hide their dreams.

Everyone cares what others think
No matter what they say or do,
They’re trying to hide something deep inside

Some day all doors will be open,
Some day all words will be spoken,
Some day no ones dreams will be broken.

But judging by the world today
That ‘Some day’ is far away,
It would be a miracle if we see that day

But now it’s time to say goodnight,
Before I run out of things to write,
So… goodnight and sleep tight.

    I liked this one Heather, who knows who the person you think you know really is. The question is would we want to know? Would we be thrilled or devastated. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Burns

When biting Boreas, fell and doure,
Sharp shivers thro' the leafless bow'r;
When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
Far south the lift,
