Treasure Island

Tim caffery

(02/09/1978 / San Fernando Valley, Los Angeles, CA)

Walk, Live, Fight, Hope


Who doesn't walk through life
Strolling upon their heart's beat
Striding forward with each breath
Skipping along from thought to thought

Who doesn't live through suffering
Scolded by the flames of hate
Seduced by rage's perversive allure
Stimulated by the brush of greeds

Who doesn't fight through doubt
Sure that correctness exists
Seeking to do more than just survive
Struggling to stand in some way

Who doesn't hope through evil
Stage secure faith amidst calamity
Shout for justice when silence is law
Sacrifice their voice for life

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
