I’m a pirate of life
Aching for treasure,
Feeling the freedom
Is what I pleasure.
I’m a pirate on land
Not one with the sea,
I’m following a compass
To find a part of me.
I’ll sail in my depths
To find caves hidden,
Whilst I test the current
Of a land forbidden.
I’m free with myself
But not the ocean around,
I’m searching for treasure
On this hollow ground.

    Enjoyed reading this, but how come when I saw myself in the poem I had a peg leg and an eye patch? I know lots of pirates who are whole! I’ll have to think on this. xo

  6. Katrina,
    I can hear the squeeze box and the seagulls cries fading
    as you hike inland from the shore on this one.
    “Land pirate?”
    Arr-tiste ye arrrre !
