Treasure Island

anthony barbuzzi


Life's Road


A line from a song
a word from a time
A quote from a guy
a fragment from the past
memories of the future
Looking into the unknown
this is
what we are
we are pre-determined

as a child
we explore and learn

as a teenager
we defy, hate, and follow

these things that we live by
bring us to maturity
these things that we were made from

into an adult
we reason and wonder
is there anything after life

lemme bring you up to speed
on this sweet sacrifice
and then you
Won’t be able to
wait for this after-life

and you can take the plunge
Into the unknown

poet Robert Louis Stevenson

AT last she comes, O never more
In this dear patience of my pain
To leave me lonely as before,
Or leave my soul alone again.... Read complete »
