Treasure Island

Prince Ifeoluwa Daniel ShanuOlu

Trusting the Undone Years


l am on the razor's edge
Trusting the undone years for a change
The feeling of pins and needles yesterday gives me
Makes me to have a pinch of salt for untold success of tomorrow
Today puts me through the mill
Because my childhood was out on a limb
Years to come turn the other check
As if cheap at the price
My present spending is taking a plunge like a gold dust to line my pocket out
How do I kick the shit of tomorrow?
When forces beyond spike their guns
A second attempt from you
Will provoke me to give you a slap on the wrist
Before I begin to kick the shit out of you
No more crying over spilt milk
Since the undone years has rewarded my childhood agony with success.

Poem of the Day

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
