Treasure chest

On an Ancient forbidden 
island
Arrived Pirates of The 
Caribbean
Jack Sparrow and David 
Jones
Joined forces to expose 
my bones
Off my flesh, 
accompanied by their 
dead boys(Crews)

A fierce battle occured in 
the jungle
I faught for unseen 
treasure bearing faith of 
an angel
Like underground 
scorpions my traps struck 
their ankels
I became the last man 
standing

I found my way to the 
chest spot
I dug and dug
Guess what, just an 
empty box
Only a piece of paper 
with printed 
instructions :" Survey thy 
heart and thee shall not 
be lost".

The letter explained :
A treasure chest lies 
within
Sacred places where the 
mind has been
A land of good and evil 
maybe
Depending what is 
allowed in,,

Then i searched and 
searched
Nothing was there to find
Till a chicken's egg 
hatched
And i remembered, it is 
within
Realising my heart was 
the Treasure Chest
I felt stupid and releaved

Now I can confidently 
say :
In my treasure chest 
resides good
Good to be called "Soul 
Food" 
Sugar, spice & everything 
nice
My treasure
My pride
