Treasure Island

Above Realisation


Life is so frail; I wish not to complain or concede to my failures
My journey started with an open heart and through all the roads travelled, I hope when it comes to the end, my heart will be open again
I have caused pain to others without intention; my soul knows I have no distain
I long for answers, of questions asked to a higher aspiration I gave my heart, lost my pride and trust, being hopeful yet accepting defeat where due
I confused friendship with dependence, many conjectures have been fulfilled, I question myself for traits that are blind to me, yet visible to the egotistical.
I find it hard to forgive, and being judgemental is a flaw I accept with due diligence. Many a memory made, and yet forgotten, dreams illuminating my night times have dulled in the light of day
I respect my elders, and with regret to which guidance I have at times closed my eyes; but as life continues, I will drink from the cup of knowledge and take heed of realisations that will fall at my feet.

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
