Treasure Island

Changing the World

Mirror of a thousand years
Look upon a reflection changed
Hold in your hands a spider web
Still wet with dew of the earth
Lift the world from your shoulders
And give it to someone more capable
Breathe the scent of rain
And kiss the song from your lips
Tip your hat
And wave goodbye
Leave her holding your rose
And your heart
Bring the love of two lovers
Make them a happy ending
Pull away the curtains
That hide the stage of life
And sing your song the earth
Listen to the applause of the ants
As their opinion matters too
Love a love that loves
The one you hold in your heart
Never let him go
Light the way
For all who follow
Shine your candle
Bright as a star
To see the wonders
In a simple blade of grass
Wander the beach
See the waves
Walk forth
And deliver
All that was asked of you
Sometimes more
Humanity is everything
Curiosity is more
Love is the heart
Warm as the fire
Not cold as the stone
A rushing waterfall
Falling into oblivion
Soaring into the sky
Like a bird of prey
On the wing
Singing their song to everyone and everything
Understand and be a part of
Do your part to help the world
To help the people
To climb the mountain
And taste the clouds
To swim in the shallows
And do it smiling
To help someone up
Not push them down
Daring to do the impossible
And not giving up
Being the one to do it willingly
And without complaint
Being the one to change the world.

    I like your choice of words and your form of writing. Both much better than that of many adults I've read. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Dickinson


"Arcturus" is his other name—
I'd rather call him "Star."
It's very mean of Science
To go and interfere!

I slew a worm the other day—
