Treasure Island

You... don't... want me...

(9-November-1994 / QLD)

LIFE! ! !


Life is pain
Life is sorrow
Life can always end tomorrow
Life is the begining not the end
Life is going around the bend
Life is surprise
Life is fear
Life, is not knowing what is near
Life is sight, sound and touch
Life is in all of us
Life is laughter
Life is shame
Life can always begin again
Life is a circle going round and round
Life continues after we’re in the ground…

    Your attitude toward life is very cynical for one so young, but your poem expresses your adolescent disappointment very well. Might I suggest you use the word 'beginning' instead of 'begin' in line four? Your final couplet is a most satisfying conclusion to the poem. love, Allie ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ (Report) Reply

    I like how on some of the lines it goes from a negative to a positive, it works well.x (Report) Reply

poet Henry Lawson


The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
