Treasure Island

Matthias Pantaleon

(August 24,1984 / Oronija Island, Nigeria)

I Understand


I see the pain in your eyes
You try to cover them with smiles
I see you are sad deep inside
The light dims in your eyes

I want you to know
I do not expect too much from you
You can hide your pain from the world
Certainly not from the walls

I will never mock at you
for making wrong choices
Maybe it's too much for you
I understand and I'll always do

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
