Treasure Island

Finding Faith To Hold On


Singing into the night, hoping every word will be heard
around the world.

Poetically taking the mysterious world of inner desires,
stopping at nothing, finding a road that will lead to
the other side of life.

Sophisticated and simple, being a model of goodness,
stepping on ends of life's edges, carefully, so as not
to fall into labyrinths of another time of darkness.

Fulfilling purposes and desires of this heart, vowing
to be alive beyond this bed of roses, taking every
challenge that is presented in time immemorial.

Fighting until the end, losing hope, yet finding the
faith to help me hold on without fears or doubts.

Becoming results of the winning side of life, tonight.

Poem of the Day

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
