Treasure Island

Mr. Nobody

(Timeless / Right Now, Right Here)

Why Must You Own Me?

Free souls freely floating
like fish in the sea

Free souls freely roaming
like critters in nature's peaks

Free souls flying, aviating
I FLY like eagles on the wing

Who would trap me and make me their play thing?
Trim my wings, grind my beak, until I looked
like a fine handsome pigeon or a royal turkey

Who can see my perfection, unmolested, and not change ME?

Fly by my side, or under my wings of love, talons gently
steadying thee, moving in and out thru life's breezes,
lofting, floating, swirling, cyclonic potency, blown out,
where does the spent wind go?
I FLY and will continue, it's in my bones and in my sinew

Poem of the Day

poet Walt Whitman

ARM’D year! year of the struggle!
No dainty rhymes or sentimental love verses for you, terrible year!
Not you as some pale poetling, seated at a desk, lisping cadenzas
