Treasure Island

Summer Huggins


Look Around


I search for the lost hope
I concur the truth
You’re something far too gone
Will you ever come back?

Look around, look what you had
Your finger tip barely holding on
I’ve always been in the shadows
A little farther, you’re almost there

Climb the highest mountain
Sail the farthest ocean
Travel the most land
I’m still in the same spot you left me

Look around, look what you had
Your finger tip barely holding on
I’ve always been in the shadows
A little farther, you’re almost there

You’re too late my dear
The girl drips from the weeping willow
Fall to the ground
Understand what you did

Whaooo!
Time!
Time time!
Re-re-rewind!

Look around, look what you had
Your finger tip barely holding on
I’ve always been in the shadows
A little farther, you’re almost there

Look around…
Look around…
Look what you had…
Your finger tip…
Barely…
Barely holding on…
I’ve always been in the shadows!
A little farther…
You’re almost there…

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
