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 Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
