Treasure Island

There is no other way


I am escaping,
as we speak,
from the screaming voices,
cruel voices,
condescension,
it hurts be me,
where i am,
it hurts to live here,
in this pain,
but me,
being who i am,
will pretend,
i am happy,
i solumly swear,
to keep silent,
in my sadness,
and to smile,
through pain,
as if it where a luxury,
i am lucky to have,
i am lucky to be alive,
i will encourage others,
expecting nothing from them,
and i will not tell you when i am sad,
i will try my hardest,
to hold back to tears,
so tight,
i know no other way.

Poem of the Day

poet Rupert Brooke

If I should die, think only this of me:
That there's some corner of a foreign field
That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
