Treasure Island

Matthias Pantaleon

(August 24,1984 / Oronija Island, Nigeria)

Moon Night


As I look at the moon
From the crack in my window
I thought she smiles at me
Wondering perhaps why I stare at her
Just hang there giving forth her brightness
And I wish I too can be a moon
to guild lost souls home
I wish I too can survive night rain like the stars
So I can be a blessing to my generation
Wrap of laughters for the afflicted
A candle light in their night
And a moon over their head
As I look at the moon

I AM not One who much or oft delight
To season my fireside with personal talk.--
Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
