Treasure Island

On my Quarter


You Only Live Once (YOLO)
I'm living this life like it's my last
But honestly I've no other to live in the face of this planet
After I bid this world goodbye

I've skimmed through life's pages
Sometimes it's a nice read and at times I get bored
Some stories are just not worth reading yet some are worth a recap
The most exciting chapter 'Puberty' was a bit messed up O_O

Death is an incredible visitor never informing on his visits
Everyone is prepared for it but afraid
I will meet it halfway and whisper 'wait till I'm 3/4 or at least a hundred'
Then I will smile and walk away

I will tell death to wait for...
I have achieved not much on my Quarter
I have not met enough people, not changed as many lives
I'm not yet done reading this book of Life

I'm not in a hurry for heaven...
There's this burden God placed in my heart
I'm yet to give it to those in need of it,
So I shall point out what I did on Earth

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.
