Treasure Island

Aufie Zophy

(18 October 1964)

Y..... Row


Sitting at the river bed
I prayed to God, I said
Please help me, show the way
Show me the light of day

Then in front of me
a small boat passed
a man was rowing

I suddenly realised
God gave already the water
God gave already the boat
But I had to row

    Yes dear, sometimes we didnt see what is in front of us is a guide, a hint, a clue and an assistant...We born as specialist to complete each others.. We pray to Him and He not make all suddenly happen, the mind that we have is the gift that we should use in any reason for good because there is always love we will find if we think....how you will understand what i am saying without thinking, and how much love is coming when you understanding....and yes we should see what we have now..llife...could be died if we ignorant but with His love life to alive again_Soul (Report) Reply

    And we have brains for a reason - to use them! ! I am the master of my fate, I am the Captain of my soul.
    Good one Aufie. (Report) Reply

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.
