Treasure Island

Tiffany Rose Moczydlowski

(November 28,1996 / Springfield, MA)

The Great Beginning

A drink is taken from the glass
She falls down on the floor
A tear falls down her face
''Why did I do this? ''

The poison bottle lays down next to her
She closes her eyes
Never to open them again
She wishes she could change this now
But she can't

People dressed in black surround her
Recognizing her family and friends
She calls out
Trying to get their attention
No one notices her

She wanders around the graveyard
Regretting, crying, hurting inside
Her guilt heavy on her shoulders
Wishing she could somehow reverse this
Wanting to tell her kids
''It's okay'' and ''I'll always love you''

Somehow she finds herself at her old home
The curving driveway,
Whitewashed fences,
Old oak tree,
And beloved rose bush
Greet her at the street
She tries not to cry

Cuz she sees her children on the swings
The see her and shout with joy
Their arms go through her, an attempted hug
They see what she is and cry

She realizes the pain in their eyes
Are caused by her
But she still stands strong
Putting her hands on her shoulders
And stroking a stray hair away from in front of Brady's eyes
She comforts them
Tells them that it's okay
She'll always love them
She's happy where she is

She vanishes
A sad ending, also begins
The great beginning

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;
