Treasure Island

Shelbie Hale

Watch Me

I once was a castaway who’s true self no one could see
Stranded on an island in a vast, endless sea

Now everything’s become better than what I ever thought
All that you have to do is sit back and watch

Watch me, see how I’ve changed over time
Watch me, look at all the mountains I’ve climbed

Watch me become more than what I am now
No longer a simple face in the crowd

Watch me, as I embrace all the love I’ve felt these days
Watch me, as my troubles begin to fade away

Watch me grow wings and finally fly
Soaring high above the clouds in the sky

Watch me, as I start to finally shine
Watch me, as I finally leave my past behind

Watch me when I let all my pain go
So that one day the world will finally know

Watch me, as I’m able to become so free
Watch me, finally unafraid to truly be me

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,
