Treasure Island

Good Notion


Black and white hues defined life
in variable degree either joy or strife
fate is unpredictable so are our dreams
like water from rains cascading into streams
becomes a river flows to the ocean of emotion
exciting tears of joy or sadness depend on notion.

Time comes when existence is filled with burden
it make us melancholic and our feelings are sadden
discouragement overcomes us becoming pessimistic
that we start to feel useless, empty and not optimistic
as such life for us becomes darkness like a chaotic prison
a dead end when anger and self pity dominates our notion.

Yet even in total darkness there is an ember of hope
when the heart still beats in rhythm with a life to cope
then the mind lit the conscience of wisdom with an insight
and with prayer God will enlightened our soul with foresight
then illuminates the darkness in us into bright colored rainbow
like newborns we're alive again so letting go of is a good notion.
