Treasure Island

What You See


Loser,
Loner,
Liar,
It's what they love to call her.

Smart,
Sassy,
Sweet,
Is what her loved ones see.

Dirty,
Filthy,
Trash,
It's her name in class.

Lonely,
Empty,
Defeat,
It's what she feels like when she sleeps.

Stupid,
Softy,
Geek,
It's what you want yourself to see.

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Walter Raleigh

EVEN such is Time, that takes in trust
Our youth, our joys, our all we have,
And pays us but with earth and dust;
