Treasure Island

Jax Ann Newton


Who I Am NOW


Storms are crashing,
Waves are bashing my body against the rocks.

I wait for the end, when this darkness will end
But my hopes have been shattered again.

With a burst of light, my world turns white,
And all around me fades.

The world I knew so long ago returns,
Entrapping me with its palisades.

Passion burns deep and long,
I know that this is where I belong.

Not this place from my distant past,
But in my current role I’ve been cast.

To help the broken-hearted soar
On the wings that off of them had been torn.

-This is my calling. This is my life.-

When the frost is on the punkin and the fodder's in the shock
And you hear the kyouck and gobble of the struttin' turkey cock
And the clackin' of the guineys, and the cluckin' of the hens
