Treasure Island

Matthias Pantaleon

(August 24,1984 / Oronija Island, Nigeria)

Are We There Yet


Are we there yet; where we long to be
The ship can only ferry us across the Nile
The mile in-between is ours to do
the walking to where we long to be

Are we there yet; where we long to be
Across the blue where the sky ties
faded blue ribbons across a flawless white
And the rainbow appears in the distance

Are we there yet; where we long to be
Across the land in the distance we see
Where the sun smiles in the face of the lake
And children take a dip with bubbles of laughter


We left our farmlands to search for a new world; here we are
thousand of miles from our home still we're not there yet

Poem of the Day

poet Edmund Spenser

My love is like to ice, and I to fire:
How comes it then that this her cold so great
Is not dissolved through my so hot desire,
But harder grows the more I her entreat?
