Treasure Island

Teddy temple


I Made It


I listened to my heart
Held onto my faith
Never gave up the struggle
Even though it was full of pains and sorrows

My journey of success
I filled it with hope
Didn't let my dreams die
And ignored my critics

I came up from nothing
And made it to something
A smile creeps on my lips
When i see myself flying with the birds like Richard Branson

Thanks to Almighty above
Who has blessed my hands greatly
Like a spider, they spin something out of nothing
For they are gifted like those of Ben Carson

I look up to the sky
Upon the shining of the sun
And glittering of the stars
I say to myself, 'finally i made it'.

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,
