Treasure Island

Katie Huntress

(march 6,1990)

life goes away


You have all known me from what I have written
But know I am different
I have learned to live life a different way
To see life in a different perspective

When I was in that hospital
I saw so many people come and go
For so many different reasons

When I first went in
I was scared and didn’t know
What was going to happen
But now I know that life is worth living

There is more to life that meets the eye
You have to look at life more carefully
Its like judging people
You shouldn’t judge a person by their looks
You need to get to know them

Life is just like that
You can’t judge life
Because if you do
Then life is going to be very rocky
Just like mine is right know
But I am trying to get through it

When I first started writing
I wrote deep and dark
I wrote about death and hurting myself
I still do here and there but I am trying to move on
And write about things that I am looking forward to

So I am moving on into a better life
A life I have never had before
A life where I can control what I do
And actually be happy

But its going to take time
So I am going to take it day by day
And see where life is going to take me

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
