Treasure Island

Eva Clara Harahap

(29 September / Medan)


What is there lay in a deepest valley....
Is it a leaf?
Is it a dead wood? ...
It is trust lay there, with all its gloom…
Since when trust can sing a happy tune?

Trust just lost its instinct…
Here comes to destroy any hope…
Oh Trust, Fear Not…
As time is unfriendly…
As the dark appears suddenly...

What is there crawling?
A caterpillar with an absence trust….
Never know they will be a beautiful butterfly…
As they’ve only seen the present….
Nor they could wait for what the future may bring…
Alas! The caterpillar dies to be one…

Life in torment…
As you put trust aside…
Choose common sense…
Then, you shall be common…
Like the caterpillar inside the cocoon…
Nobody will remember it…
Once they saw a beautiful butterfly…

Life will move on….
Trust will hide its face inside all darkness…
Only strong hearts can reveal it….
Trust will appear with ugliness…
As from ugliness comes wisdom…
Then, wisdom will reach eternity….
At the end, All will leads to legends…

No legends will ever die….
As Legend is the only end of Trust…
Be friend with Trust...
You shall not regret...

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
