The Everlasting Treasure
I am a lonely captain
Of a haunted ship.
With no fate,
And nothing left worth
To lit my cannons for.
Until, in the foggy distance
I saw a dreamful treasure,
But a treacherous ocean
Keeping us apart.
Full sais ahead, through giant waves,
Strong and imposing currents, deceiving fog
And wind so fast that sliced skin like knives.
But I broke through, found a way.
A treasure way more precious than gold,
The One that lifted the curse.
And now I shall never sail these treacherous seas alone
For now I don’t sail alone.
Daniel Silva, 12.º C
Some days I spend all night thinking about you,
I feel restless.
Other days I feel like I can’t express what I feel for you,
I feel helpless.
I realized why I felt so shy to even greet you with a simple hi,
My love for you had made me breathless.
Every night I would try and muster up some courage
To finally tell you the truth, to really try,
Asked my friends what to do and get encouraged,
But all these what-ifs break me down and make me cry.
I couldn’t write all the reasons why you were the one I fell for,
I’d be writing a dictionary of compliments and you’d get bored,
To me you’re just so perfect, so elegant, so eloquent,
I have trouble believing you’re real, you’re heaven-sent.
Fábio Ferreira, 11.º B
I was wandering
And I was alone
I was drifting
With nowhere to go
You came to me
Like a midnight summer breeze
So fresh, so clean
So warm and so pristine
No one can make me feel
The colors that you bring
You taught me how to love
And held me under your wing
Now I can breathe
Now I can trust
You gave me purpose
And put me above
Rita Silva, 11.º D
