Treasure Island

Sylvia Chidi


Today is just another day

Today is just another day
Of highs and lows
When the winds blow and the waters flow

Today is just another day
A day to make amends and new friends
For there will come a time it will all end

Today is just another day
We eat and go to work
Some seat and wait for luck
Others cheat giving the sweet talk

Today is just another day
Where we must live for tomorrow
Or give in to everlasting sorrow

Today is just another day
We breathe in the same air
Trying to invent new ideas
Exhibiting passionate care or fear

Today is just another day
While some of us delight in joy
Others will find a way to deploy
Tools to destroy the moments we enjoy

Today is no different from yesterday
Technology the only change in the game
The people are still the same
Looking for one to take on the blame
Always worshipping those with a name
Broken hearts and love keep alive the dying flame

Today is just another day
It will fade away
Quickly into yesterday
Tomorrow then gladly will become today!

    I was initially drawn to your name that looked like a typical eastern Nigeria name (Chidi) , only to see Germany. But since you haven't said much about yourself in your biography, I won't be surprised you are Nigerian.
    About the poem, Today is just another day - it is really a nice write up. Something you can paste on the wall of your room and wake up to read everyday, taking the positive and making sure the negative doesn't apply to you. It's something we can relate with. (Report) Reply

poet Sir Walter Raleigh

EVEN such is Time, that takes in trust
Our youth, our joys, our all we have,
And pays us but with earth and dust;
