Treasure Island

BriYonna Scroggins

(Febrauary 14 / Queens, New York)

The Steam


All my life I've been hurt
By somebody that's not even worth,
headaches heart pains and for most the worst
arguments, break-ups that forces me to curse
and say things i don't mean

THE STEAM

Of not having a father until I was thirteen
is hidden in the scene that allows me not to scream
but the thoughts in my head makes my heart cold,
And the image of my character allows me to behold

THE STEAM

Of knowing my past filling like dirt
I hold my head up and smile
instead of frowning holding my head down
so they can't see the true princess they've crowned

Pain causes hurt
Hurt causes bad things
Bad things causes struggle
And Struggle causes MY STEAM

Poem of the Day

poet Edmund Spenser

My love is like to ice, and I to fire:
How comes it then that this her cold so great
Is not dissolved through my so hot desire,
But harder grows the more I her entreat?
