Treasure Island

Things will get better


Life can be unfair to us, we want to run and hide
It's times like these you need a friend, to be right by your side
We all have hurt and loneliness, we sometimes look away
We try to hide these aweful thoughts, each morning of each day

We need to look within ourselves, and take the good inside
As this will help us through these times, our dignity and pride
Each day will help to heal the heart, we need to take things slow
And just remember each of us, our kindness we must show

People tend to hurt us, with reasons so unclear
We cry and sob and feel alone, we long for someone near
We seem so lost and frightened, the ache inside is real
We sometimes want to look above, and humble as we kneel

So take the good inside, and take things day by day
Things will get better, as we move, along lifes weary way
We all are special dont forget, we need this to believe
That one day things will shine for us, just close your eyes and dream

Poem of the Day

poet John Gay

Friendship, as love, is but a name,
Save in a concentrated flame;
And thus, in friendships, who depend
On more than one, find not one friend.

A hare who, in a civil way,
