Treasure Island

Jack Rivas


What lies


What lies underneath the layers of this make believe world?
where thruth finds and crawls its ferocious way
What lies underneath the layers of this made belive existance?
where the smallest bit of distraction takes over one's circulation
making the brain flow with stagnant energy
What lies underneath the layers of words?
Words become sounds in air
mediocracies that only exercise the lips
What lies underneath feelings
that exorcise all hatred
giving harmony to life.
