Treasure Island

They Show In Those Seasons


When rage attacks
And terror strikes,
All have one desire
That someone will answer the cry.

When war is over used
And child’s strength abused,
All is shaken
Because none will enlighten.

But they show in those seasons
That’s why they are called “heroes”
Because their job is
To fill the earth of peace.

When the oppressed
And the harassed
Have none to run to
There’s a hero that will save you.

If the leaders are made,
Heroes are trained.
Their training is long
Because they need to be strong.

A leader may do a mistake
But a hero is there to save.
But these heroes
Only show in those seasons.

When the bad guys
Filled one’s mind
Of darkness and treachery,
A hero will show and erase insanity.

But a hero
Is not always a hero
Because they appear
Only when no one is available to hear.

But you can be a hero
Even if you are still zero.
Just live your day
To make justice, mercy, and truth stay.

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

So we'll go no more a-roving
So late into the night,
Though the heart still be as loving,
And the moon still be as bright.

For the sword outwears its sheath,
