Treasure Island

Thıs Just Wasn’t Meant For Me:


As a little boy,
Growing up Life should be full of fun, laughs & joy.
This just wasn’t meant for me.

As a young man in his teens,
Love grows and couples meet, see the world and wonder where they will be,
This just wasn’t meant for me.

As a man on his own and in his early twenties,
Life should be open & free, choices endless,
Loves grows and family’s to be.
This just wasn’t meant for me.

As an older man,
I should be happy with grand kids at my feet, playing and happy to see me,
Holidays full of family, love and joy.
This just wasn’t meant for me.

So now I sit and think, were did I go wrong, what could I have done better,

I’m still alone, maybe as punishment for something unseen, or was it all that was done to me.

Looks like this is what was meant for me.....

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—
