Treasure Island

Angelo Mitchell

(9-22-92 / Dublin, Ga)


I thought success was having money,
but I know now
people can't trust each other anymore
that's why most people that are rich
they end up on drugs or killing themselves
cause in this world
they tell us success is living rich,
but it's not that good
success to me now.

Success to me now
is you getting out of high school graduating
getting your diploma
getting a job and a car
a house and saving money
and having a beautiful family that trust you.

Success is all about living right
not about living rich
we must live and not be so evil towards each other
be yourself and never let anyone put you down
because truly we are all wealthy
not wealthy because we have money,
but wealthy because we have ourselves
and a wonderful family to get us there
where we need to be going
to me success could be anything,
but you must not give up.

Poem of the Day

poet Anne Bradstreet

Lo, now four other act upon the stage,
Childhood and Youth, the Many and Old age:
The first son unto phlegm, grandchild to water,
Unstable, supple, cold and moist's his nature
