    Poem Commentary

    This is about the island of Saba becoming part of Holland,and how the youth and all who come after them will have much to learn.
    The winds of change has arrived.

    Hurricane

    Lovely Caribbean sun
    Deceive me with your brightness
    Soft breezes flowing
    Straight in my heart
    Blue water flowing through my veins
    Oh you liar...you deceptor
    Filling up my head
    Overflowing with stagnant water
    Left from the hurricane
    That wreaked havoc in the soul of youth

    You gave up second chances
    And first ones too I see
    And when the trees came crashing down
    You blamed it all on me

    But I am not your Savior
    Nor your shining light
    And as the years go passing by
    You will also take to flight

    For one cannot soar
    If one cannot fly
    And blaming that on others
    Just makes me want to cry

    So stand up to the storms
    That will surely pass through here
    And when you're feeling weary
    Just bow your head in prayer

    mufasa, I love how your rhetoric is feisty and bold. The story you tell informs and emotes through the fury of the storm. ginga

    The true philosopher and the true poet are one, and a beauty, which is truth, and a truth, which is beauty, is the aim of both.

    Ralph Waldo Emerson, American Poet (1803-1882)
