Favorite Quote:
"Man is least himself when he talks in his own person. Give him a mask, and he will tell you the truth" -Oscar Wilde

On a beach I do ponder,
For pondering clears my minds mist.
I brood over pirates, which gives me great wonder.
Then I see where the horizon touches the sun with a kiss,
This out of nowhere, a ship does appear.
My adventure has begun, for I jump with great joy,
The ship is now bigger and I grab all my gear.
I then step forward being just a bit coy,
As a small boat approaches with pirates to be.
I jump into the boat without delay,
I could see the vast ocean awaiting for me.
I climb on board to start a new day,
For at dawn we would set sail seeking treasures galore.
This voyage of destiny will change my life ever more.

The author's comments:
I happened to be sitting bored in my room when my mind started to wonder to far off places. I then had a sudden image of a boy waiting on an island for his new life to began. Then came the idea of pirates.
