Treasure Island

Thou Shalt Find Happiness


Thou shalt find Happiness

Thou shalt not seek the darkness
Nor to hide amongst its shadows

To recede into It’s cobwebs
And forever forget peace

But to come out from the rocks
Into the blinding light

Holding high your downcast head
Exposing your pale faced stare

Establishing an awareness yet unknown
Unto the emptiness that is

Open your heart to better things
Know peace or no peace

Thou shalt not linger in the hot musty places
Which have long since been your home

But to enter into the kingdom
That now awaits the id

A hand is outreached to find you
Places you’ve dared not go

To realities yet unreal
And too soft to touch

Release me from my bondage
My self-inflicted pain

Which I have been powerless to capture
On my own
Only happiness can bring happiness
Lead me there

Must I be clean to take a bath?
Wash me free

Thou shalt not allow this trek
To destroy all that is

Better things await.

Happiness
Like sand

Slipping idly by

I do not have the tools
On my own

My hand is out
There is little time

This is my happy poem
Find it while I can’t

The firste stock-father of gentleness,
What man desireth gentle for to be,
Must follow his trace, and all his wittes dress,
Virtue to love, and vices for to flee;
