For those who are used to receiving my typical posts, you will find something different in this poetry post. They come from a time of my searching.
Island of Paradise
Well, I tried to find the answers
to the questions in my heart
confused by people and places
from them I seemed worlds apart.
My attitudes so different
I’ve had to go my own way
from the group, I would often stray.
I’ve seen people hiding in shadows
and others docking in the bay
those people have turned me off
lack of life is what I say.
But, then there are others
who take their ships to the waves
riding out the currents
and its toughness that it paves
they’re in search of an island
their island of paradise
where half the challenge is getting there
serenity to entice.
Fulfilling their destinies
as tough as they may be
contentment is their reward
on an island in the sea.
