Treasure Island

The Real Answer

The answer lies deeper
Than the cut of the blade
Your answer is found
in the heart of the brave
That courage is found
In the will to forgive
Courage is found
In the art of your gift
search deep enough
And you will find
Something not worthy
Of leaving behind
Because you, my friend
Should not be afraid
Because you, my friend
are one of the brave

Your life may be surrounded
By purple skies
But you can find the will
To not run and hide
This life you have
must be embraced
Do not run
Stand off face to face

Again and again
Just continue to try
And i promise one day
You'll get your chance to fly

Poet's Notes about The Poem

I have a friend, who thinks constantly about taking her own life. She just needs
To learn to keep her head up
Through all times
And she'll make it out alright.

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
