Treasure Island

Matthias Pantaleon

(August 24,1984 / Oronija Island, Nigeria)

If It's Within My Reach


If it's within my reach
I will wipe tears in every heart
A light in their eyes

Shelter to the homeless
A roof in rainy night
Affection to the afflicted
Smile to the broken spirit

Son to childless families
Laughter in their lungs
Comforter of the widows
Nightingale to soften their sleep

A shoulder to the weak
Like lion in zion
Hope to the despair
A light in their tunnel

Dead to erase
Pain to ease
Dark cloud to sunny sky
And certainly chaos to peace

Poem of the Day

poet Edgar Allan Poe

Once upon a midnight dreary, while I pondered, weak and weary,
Over many a quaint and curious volume of forgotten lore,
While I nodded, nearly napping, suddenly there came a tapping,
