Treasure Island

Lora Colon

(26 September 1944 / Missouri - United States)

To Be Free!


Every now and then
My spirit breaks free,
And when I get the urge,
There's no stopping me;
I have to run wild
And free in the world,
With my little flag
Of independence unfurled!

I'm always searching
For an exciting face,
But I watch from a distance -
I know my place;
And you chase after me,
In the panic of loss,
But I burn and destroy
Every bridge that I cross

O, please, let me wander,
Let me be free,
Let me do what comes
So naturally;
You know you won't find me
If I don't want you to,
But why do you panic....
I always come back to you

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,
And the moon still be as bright.

For the sword outwears its sheath,
