Treasure Island

Ameena k.g

(3 March,1996 / Lagos, Nigeria)

Memories


They hold us back,
tie us down;
blind us with
our deadly past.

make us reminisce,
all that's behind;
leaving the future,
a hole in time.

we can't let go,
so engulfed in-
the sadness, the grief
enticingly wrong.

This is your life,
the silence speaks;
erasing the fact,
they are just memories.

    Ameena, I've taken a few moments to review all three of your poems. From my perspective you have the gift. This is a good write, as were the others. Keep writer, keep striving, and you'll be amazed at the new feelings you'll begin to experience as others comment on your work and you gain more self-confidence, more self knowledge, and greater understanding of the Divine. If so moved, check out some of my poems, rate them, comment on them. Best wishes to you and yours in the coming New Year! (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

So we'll go no more a-roving
So late into the night,
Though the heart still be as loving,
And the moon still be as bright.

For the sword outwears its sheath,
