Treasure Island

Eric Cockrell


The Few


so few have
the courage
to stand up
and speak
the truth

and we make
martyrs of them

so few have
the courage
to be human.
so few know
the freedom
that lets them
give all

without asking back

so few have
the inner strength
to walk naked
before the world,
baring their bruises
and scars

so few have
the guts to
lead, not follow
so few dare
to live

but it is
these few
that give hope
to the many

and make love
the art of living
