Treasure Island

Patrick Maness

(10-15-1992)

The light side of humanity


Human kind is an odd thing



in the wake of disater



we spring into action



not caring for our own safety



we give what we have regardless



always seeming to scrap enough togather



we open our homes to complete strangers



we break bread with people who have lost everything



men and woman rushed into two burning buildings on a day in September of 01



most knowing they wouldn't make it out alive



those men and women died hero's



just as those who gave their lives to take a plane heading to D.C. down



knowing they wouldn't make it they died hero's



the coast was awash with death in 05 many pairshed in the storm and floods that followed



and yet in the wake of it all



those people gave it all



even when they lost everything



On May 8,07 a twister leveled a little town in Kansas



People came from all around just to help out



things may always change



but through out history



our kind have always taken care of one another



the human spirit is a strong will to bend



but in the darkest hours we shine our brightest

Our youth, our joys, our all we have,
And pays us but with earth and dust;
   Who in the dark and silent grave,
