Treasure Island

Life and Death


Life on this earth is the death in step
And the death which we see and strife
In fact it is the beginning of new life
Still, not happy, keepeth not any pep

Don’t know why always we cry,
” we will die, we will die”
Tell me, who, with eternity survives
When breath dies, body decays
But our virtue survives and says

“Treasure that we carry
Must not be confiscated
Nothing is secret there
Everything opened unseen
Into the sacred world I mean”

    Yes I believe our greatest treasures survive death ... memories.
    So harvest many memories and store them in your heart.
    Then in our spiritual world we will be rich. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
