Treasure Island

Clara Odelia Ciutara


We have been believed
So beautiful earth
But we never realized it
Until it got angry

We have been loved
By so many people
But we never cared them
Until they left us

We have been given
This great life
With its existing ‘till now
But we would never understand
Until we die

It’s a warning to everybody
A warning from above
To humans

To realize how blessed we were
And how beautiful it would be
If we heard the warning

But nobody hears
Nobody cares
‘Till this warning
Incised hurt
In our history

This is a warning
From above
Realize how believed we were
How loved we were
How given we were
And how unthankful we are

Hear this warning
Or you’ll see the same disaster
You’ll be in the same despair
We’ll be in the same hell

    Hi Clara Angel - This poem will make us all think - TEN. The earth is angry because we have misused it. We need to care for the Earth while it can still sustain life. We need to care for our friends while they are still with us - we need to make the most fo every day! The poem is a warning. 'HEED THIS WARNING - OR YOU'LL SEE THE SAME DISASTER - THE SAME DEPAIR - THE SAME HELL - AWESOME. Love you in Poetry - JOHN. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
