Treasure Island

tom Le Guilcher

(24/02/90 to preasent / Bristol)


Life is like the waves it has its ups and downs
Life is like a roller coaster it has its twists and turns
Life is like a sport it just depends on what we play
Life is like a game of poker it just depends on what we are dealt

Life can be given life can be taken
Life can be a curse life can be a blessing
Life can be a pain life can be in sain

Life has its ways life has its days
Life has its love life has its hate
Life has its gentler touch but it has its harder punch

Life brings you your knees when you feel in need
Life brings you a lot of things
but in the end it depends on what we do

    I think that this is a very beautiful poem and the first four lines that are displayed are simply genius. The way that the waves are compared to life is fantastic and it really made me think wow, that is exactly what life is. It also makes you want to read more as you have a lovely style of writing and you immediately want to know what you are going to rite next. Congratulations on this masterpiece! (Report) Reply

    I think people like your poems because of your comparisons. I know I do. I often hear different comparisons comparing life. But I've never seen them all fit into a poem and compliment each other the way yours do. The way you sum life as neither being good or bad, just however you handle it, seems like a good way to look at it. I like positive, but realistic poems like this. Love the colorful metaphors ;)

    the reason this poem might be so popular is because some people dont know what life is... its based on this poen ups, and downs, twists and turns is exactly what life is... and you just pointed out to people what life REALLY is and now they are starting to think and realize that life ISNT so easy... thats just my comment on this one... and why I think its so popular...

Poem of the Day

poet Edmund Spenser

My love is like to ice, and I to fire:
How comes it then that this her cold so great
Is not dissolved through my so hot desire,
But harder grows the more I her entreat?
