Treasure Island

Okoronkwo Jonathan Jackson

(31/12/1987 / Ebonyi State Nigeria)

Tide of Destiny


Pushing in the tide
Our ship set sail
Dancing
Waggling
Seeking a pace for the shore
Of hope
Of peace
Of serenity
To halt at the harbor of success
But
Lo!
The wave of the storm
Beating the metallic strength
Causing it to dangle
Upon the surface of the deep
And we the sailors
Our hearts lurked upon the palms of our hands
We wiggle
Our eyes closed
Our ears ajar
Mouth agape
Leased to the hand of fate
Seeking the clamp of providence
Uncertain of posterity
Wither we become
Then unmasked he our captain of fortune
In the heat of our dread
Anxiety
Trepidation
With a smile
Of courage
Favor
Assurance
And sure futurists
Then we realized that
The tide of destiny
Is the mark
Of great achievers.

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
