Treasure Island

Liliana EL.


Then and Now


A while back I said I had no friends
Looking on today it's everyone

Back then saying hi was a struggle, a great feat
Now it's only natural for me

I said that I don't know their names
Only faces that are unclaimed

Now I can say I know them all
I can say that we are friendly

Laughing alongside playfully
Sitting and smiling next to each

Gotta gotta get me some more

    Cool portrayal of metamorphosis. Nicely created, a real identifiable piece. I came out of the dark as well. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

So we'll go no more a-roving
So late into the night,
Though the heart still be as loving,
