Treasure Island

Patrick Maness


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

poet Sir Walter Raleigh

EVEN such is Time, that takes in trust
Our youth, our joys, our all we have,
And pays us but with earth and dust;
   Who in the dark and silent grave,
