Treasure Island

Jessie Hopkins

(9/23/94 / Missouri, United States)

Voice of an Unwanted

I had a hope.
A hope to explore the world,
to change it, to save it.

I had a dream.
A dream I would've forgotten,
discovered, changed, fulfilled.

I had a heart.
A heart that already knew you,
waiting to feel your love.

I have a wish.
A wish you would've wanted me.
Now I wait at the Gate
for you, my mother, to come home.

    Sad poem. Sounds like an aborted babies cry or a child given up for adoption. Either way it was nicely worded. And I could sense the pain within. Nicely done. Allan Gerard~ (Report) Reply

poet Robert Louis Stevenson

AT last she comes, O never more
In this dear patience of my pain
To leave me lonely as before,
Or leave my soul alone again.... Read complete »
