Treasure Island

Flencirose Basera

Trapped Bubbles!

Bubbles wildly rolling like trapped balls,
In a small space within me.
A place that controls me.
How can I release them?
Need I relate how it is?
Who will hear me?
Words are used differently.
Mostly they are used to define a picture.
Use words wisely and change a life!
Which words?
When you say words and do actions that reduce me.
That make me little.
Smaller than a dot.
Yet you smile and say, 'are you okay mate? '
You preach fairness and equality.
If I talk will you listen?
Will you hear me cry within my soul?
I am a person!
Just like you!

    a fabulous urging question / such a heavy burden / a human failure / a gnawing
    and painful frustration that always end in non convincing philosophical turn /
    your loud cry is by no means the last / that is the fate and the fatal answer.
    thanks dear poet for the great pain you awaken a fresh inside me your reader. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Lawson

The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
