Treasure Island

Timothy muggaga


Streams


I have seen Both young and old
all ages in life and its entire fold
all who've been cheated and sold
during seasons warm and cold
For moments of tears and joys as extremes
i have met a nation at the streams

i have watched wars end in peace
nature and nurture seem to kiss
truth and deception held in a truce
history and the present in ties so loose
but its the image of life and its creams
the sight of reconciliation at the streams

every one who thirsts will drink
and the nations will not sink
even in storms they will not falter
while standing at the streams of healing water
this purity is what gives humanity a shoulder
Healing the cities and borders

    even in storms they will not falter
    while standing at the streams of healing water
    this purity is what gives humanity a shoulder
    Healing the cities and borders
    loved it.

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.
