Treasure Hunt

Poem By Ronald E. Blacklock

I've been around the world in my mind
Seeking treasures I did not find;
Chasing the rainbow on an endless trail
Just like a puppy chasing it's tail.

To the depths of the great blue sea
Seeking that which was hidden from me;
Just what is it I'm looking for?
When I find it, will I still want more?

What will fill my every need,
Turn my mind from ravenous greed;
What will satisfy my hunt for treasure?
What will overflow my life with pleasure?

Time flies by as I grow old
Still looking for that pot of gold,
Never once stopping to realize
It was always there before my eyes

A well marked trail in the form of a cross
Leading to treasures that will never be lost;
No sorrow, no greed, an endless life of pleasure,
The end of the rainbow with heavenly treasure.

Smiley Face

I have observed how you tower over our city,
Standing tall just like a proud soldier.
You always have that smile on our face, day and night!
You make me sick!

Crossing The Tub-Ulant Sea

Sixteen men set afloat
to cross the tub in a toy boat;
The water was rough like a tidal wave
because little Johnny wouldn't behave.
