Treasure Island

Andrew Long

(1/1/1992 / A small community.)

Victimized


I've been a victim,
For a long time.
Never realizing,
Nothing is sublime.
I've killed, I've screamed.
I've stabbed, I've dreamed.
I've smoked, I've drank,
I've made a problem,
Out of a prank.
There is a darker,
Far darker,
Side to this world.

There's nothing we can do,
About it.
Open your eyes,
To see the world.
Let the poison of reality,
Help you drift away.

I've crushed hoped,
Killed dreams.
I've brough hell,
To innocent lives.

I regret what I've dont,
And beg for the past.
The past before I realized,
What the world really is.
I long for the shielded comfort,
of the world's facade.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
