Treasure Island

RIC S. BASTASA


the late realization of Eliezer


after so many failures
despite all the hard work
and so many tries
on the promises of another day
the assurances of hope
and the salvos of

no retreat
no surrender

Eliezer still flunks and falls
down to the bottom of
the floors of disappointments

no sooner did he realize
when he gave up everything
(to include his precious life)

that his only purpose in life
was only to
praise God
His Creator
