"My Three Things" by Barb Hensongispsaca
If I was on a desert isle
and I could take three things,
I'd have to think quite long and hard
about what I would bring.

I'd need a way for making fire
so I'd keep warm and dry.
I do not like my food served raw,
and I don't care to try.

I'd boil my water to be safe
and hard set stones for tools.
I'd use the fire to steralize
and show the beasts who rules.

I'd need to have the largest knife
to help me stay alive.
I'd cut some timber for a place
to stay just to survive.

A weapon it would make for me,
plus carving out some bowls.
I'd even make some silverware -
now that would be a goal.

I'd carve a path where I would trod
and cut down fruit to eat.
If I were truly lucky, I
could gather my own meat.

Now for the third thing I would want
to take along with me,
would be a lot of writing tools
'cause no one would believe

this epic journey I would make,
I'd pen my life alone.
I'd write my poems and memoirs, too.
Oh, what skills I would hone.

I'd write down Bible verses that
I could recite by heart,
a thousand poems or more I'd pen,
'cause this would be my start.

I'd even write some songs about
my struggles I have faced.
And all this I could do o'er time,
no muss, no fuss, no haste.

I challenge you, what would you do
while on your desert isle -
if you could chose three things to take
and be there for awhile?
