Treasure Island

Liliana EL.


Truth: Society


Hard to believe what's set in front of me
People with 'traordinary abilities
Here their work's set in front of me

Hard to believe what people say
What's to believe and how to decide
Don't know where to turn for the truth
Forget the others, just think of yourself, look inside

Can't decide which path to take
Spin around and take a leap of faith
Too afraid to take a fall
It's okay, it won't hurt at all

Pain is only relative
It's imagined and dismissed
Supporters are there to lift you up
Don't think for a second that you'll be stuck in muck

Too much
Mindless worrying
Too much chaotic thinking

Too many people and places and things
Which you don't know but recede from
Box yourself up in a little hole
Scrunch yourself up
You're missing out
Missing out on all our fun

We want you next to us

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
