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 Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
