Treasure Island

Allen Steble

(20/04/1987)

Within a diamond


On the outside i am strong
My very skin shines with many pearls
I feel trapped in my self though
not able to escape, caged up in confusion
I feel almost a part of my surrounds
one with an inanimate object, a precious one
I hope somebody will find the precious stone in which i dwell
Because I am a burning flame on the inside
and that makes me sparkle, my own pain
I am trapped, trapped within a diamond

    Once one understands himself/herself as Soul, a particle of consciousness of the IT IS (God) diamonds pale in comparison. Check out my poem Drift Up, one line in there says,
    Rise early one morning and catch a sunrise
    Or maybe find diamonds in dew.

    I enjoy your work! Ciao. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
