Treasure Island

Emmanuel Arunee Mwanza


Patiently Waiting


Patiently waiting
Cautiously watching

Continuously alert and alive
Sitting there doing nothing but expecting

Giving the best tries and then living in hope
Trusting every action and well calculated thought

Like football, passing thoughts from one side of the brain to the other
So patient and yet under constant fighting
The heart wrestling with the brain

The only prayer is that it shouldn’t be a deadlock
As I wait for my time of success
To be the best I can,
Eyes everywhere trying to cease every opportunity peeping

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
