Treasure Island

Sulaymon Tadese Faozahny

Tongue


There is a power
Of life and death
In the tongue,
An encouraging word
To someone
Who is down can heal than
Make it through the day.

The power of word
Is something hard
To understand,
An encouraging word
Can go such a long way
Anyone can speak words
Someone can type words

That
Trend to rod another
Of the spirit to continue
In difficult time
Special are the healing words
May our word
Be our ambassador

Because
Life laugh at you
When you are unhappy
Life smiles at you
When you are happy
Life salutes you
When you make others happy

Live as long as you want
You will die one day;
Love whatever you like
You will be separated from it
Do what you want
You will be repaid for it
Tongue just honey and sour taste

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.
