Treasure Island

Sandra Feldman


Of Self and Men


As human beings, not all there,
Pretending always that we care,
We really don't know what we want,
We come and go and always rant,
We experiment with torture, sex,
We don't know if we're great or wrecks,
Psychiatry is no great help,
A Mystery the Human Self.

    Psychiatry is no great help,
    A Mystery the Human Self.

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.
