The Island

Island life brought shadows
Along with some light trails
The synonyms of living
Beneath the great earth’s sails

Growing up with whispers
That elsewhere was more alive
Despite this dispirit knowledge
Island life helped us to thrive

We surfed around our feelings
As we sailed around the coast
And wondered as we did so
What we would miss the most

Knowing that one day we’d leave
A better chance for our lives
But also we’d come back again
To show The Island we’d survived
