Treasure Island

The World Around Me


The world around me
Is like a gold lined tomb
A Beautiful work of art
That holds hidden dangers

The world around me
Is like a rubber band streched tight
The tention keeps building and building
Untill it breaks with a painfull snap

The world around me
Is like a screen saver
a picture created by someone else
to hide the wrongs of others

The world around me
is like a golden treasure
fought over through time
to be possesed by only one

poet Rupert Brooke

If I should die, think only this of me:

That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
