Treasure Island

Ray Lucero


"SOMETHING GREATER THAN FEAR"*


As a reckoning draws near
Something is happening!
My knowing soul tells me,
"There's something greater than fear"

Fear's nothing more than illusion
A wizard hiding behind a curtain;
Smoke n' mirrors creating confusion,
Causing his victims to feel uncertain

Mankind will finally see the reason;
They've been fooled for such a long time
For every great change there's a season,
When truth and justice prevail over crime

‘Til then Brethren be of good cheer,
Keep close those whom you hold dear

poet Sir Walter Raleigh

EVEN such is Time, that takes in trust

And pays us but with earth and dust;
