What is so funny?
All that is joyous in life
Enjoy life honey!
Hills rise above the ground
Like how phoenixes rise above ashes
Phoenixes are mystical,
and symbolize rebirth
Leave your mark upon the world
Because time flies and life is short
One does not need to be as tall nor as high as a mountain
Because Dr. Seuss even said that, “A person is a person, no matter how small”
Practice humbleness and humility
Instead of having a head full of hot air
And go ahead and let your voice be heard
Because the hills are alive with the sound of music!
Climb every mountain until dreams materialize like soil upon the richness of Earth itself!
Hi, how are you?
I don’t know
How is your day?
I don’t know
Some people have trouble expressing themselves
Especially people who limited knowledge
But for the ones fortunate enough
To receive a proper education
Please practice maturation
To make the world a better place
Rather than being clueless and oblivious
Utilize the mind and have a heart
And that would be the start
To a brighter future
“Me” might sound boastful
But that is part of one’s
And if the “eyes” of that person
Do something wonderful with the
Then that “I” can see
That anyone can
Contribute to the world
And help establish harmony
With the surrounding area
Poetry is art
