Treasure Island

Disenchantment


It’s been almost a lifetime
in gyrating spiraling flow

Defying constant onslaught
of getting pulled far below

Each time tried resurfacing
in a new vortex got caught

Adding on presented misery
to existing scene distraught

Tired of repetitive challenges
testing every bit of strength

Wonder extent of all trials
and of tribulation’s length

Little placidity is yearned for
the current struggle to end

With a little let up in effort
as respite in ongoing trend

Nastiest of any situation
eventually gets to abate

Perseverance lone resolve
coping with ubiquitous fate

Hope this skirmish exertion
positivity goes to project

With apt awards for labor
expectancy which reflect

Poem of the Day

poet John Gay

Friendship, as love, is but a name,
Save in a concentrated flame;
And thus, in friendships, who depend
On more than one, find not one friend.

A hare who, in a civil way,
