Treasure Island

Unknown


I cannot stand it
When you kneel down.
I cannot stand it
When you know my name.
I cannot stand it
When you know where I live.
I cannot stand it
When you walk me home.
I cannot stand it, honey,
I just cannot,
Though I do not want to be the one
That is known by the whole world.
I do not want to be the one
That is put on that poster wall.
I do not want to be the one
That no secrets can keep.
It might sound really weird, honey,
Bur I like to be an unknown creature
That can come to a place
And be able to introduce its name.
I like to be the strange one
That might seem out of place
So when I meet someone that becomes my friend
I shall be happy again.
I do not want you to take a picture of me,
I do not want my face in that magazine.
I only want to be unknown,
So when I do something great
People would not be like
“ Hey, boring,
The same girl again”.
So if you see me at the store
Please act like I am a stranger.
If you see me at my door,
Do not come and just
Ask me about my life.
I have decided, honey,
Who I want to be:
I want to be,
The girl that no one knows,
So when I get home
And see you at my door
I shall finally be surprised.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
