Island

Original journal entry June 5/2013


Amidst an ocean
lies an island                      
               fertile
                      weathered by battering winds
                      crashing waters
                      and forceful hands of
                      wrecked ships
It lays curled there
                      amongst waves
                      testing its will
                                     to persevere against
                      invaders
                      trespassers
                      wounded men in beards with
                      curled fingers holding lessons written in
                                                        anguish

Men who invade
             trample on
             march through
             taking with them spoils of
             conquest and return home healed
Amidst an ocean
              lies an island
                            fertile still
