Treasure Island

Your Words, You Mind, Your soul

Words are powerful motivators
We can use them to curse or bless others,
Encourage or discourage,
inspire or belittle
Enliven or deaden,
Embolden or frighten,
Grudging or ungrudging,
Embroiled or disembroil.

The mind is a powerful tools
You have to develop it,
Protect it,
And use it wisely
But most important than your mind
It's your soul that touches people
You can touch the world
It's depend on who you are
It's who your are meant to be.

Sometimes the connection you make with others
Sneaks up with you.
You share experiences
You have history
You from a bond.
The briefest connection can make
The strongest most indelible impression

Sometimes we lied so that we can leave
And we also lie so that we can return
But beyond that,
We do everything in our capacity to live by the truth.
it's not complicated,
It, s very simple
It's because YOU LOVE THEM.

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
