Treasure Island

Recompense


I came here quite by accident many long years ago
Not knowing how I got here
But some how I just know
That even though I've tried to fit
I never will belong
The journey has been futile
And I'm no longer strong
I can't pretend its all okay
As I wander in the night
Hoping for a brighter day
And not give up the fight
For one more day's survival
It doesn't make much sense
I must return from whence I came
To make my recompense

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Dickinson

"Arcturus" is his other name—
I'd rather call him "Star."
It's very mean of Science
To go and interfere!

I slew a worm the other day—
