Treasure Island

Arik Fletcher

(Zimbabwe)

Trusade


Heroes, we were born to be,
Seeking out our destiny,
Striving for a better life,
Free from pain, disease and strife,

Heroes, we were meant to be,
Known for all eternity,
Searching for what none have found,
All across this ancient ground,

Heroes, we could never be,
Slaves to our mortality,
Reaching for the stars in vain,
All our tears lost in the rain.

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,
