Treasure Island

Christopher Moore


Underneath the pain
In a Country by your side
Underneath the suffering
That so many sleep to hide

Underneath the tremors
There's no Mother for a child
Underneath the rubble
Is what's left of broken smiles

Underneath the bridge
Is a man without a home
Underneath the moonlight
There's a child who cries alone

Underneath the remnants
Where children played without a fear
Underneath the blanket
An infant clings to life so dear

Underneath the tragedy
It's up to us to make a start
Underneath the grief
A chance to unbreak someones heart

Underneath the dreams
That were shattered in a glance
Underneath the ruins
Is help to build a second chance

Underneath the sun
Where lovers long to sail away
Underneath the gray sky
A child survives another day

Underneath disaster
Is a longing to reach out
Underneath this calling
Desire burns through all self doubt

Poem of the Day

poet Walt Whitman

ARM’D year! year of the struggle!
No dainty rhymes or sentimental love verses for you, terrible year!
Not you as some pale poetling, seated at a desk, lisping cadenzas
