Meliora

Getting better
Feeling better
Gratitude for being alive
Let the mind soar
And strive for more
For each person has only one life
“Improve” is like
“I am proof”
That I can continue on this journey
Keep going until the end of time
For the end is simply a normal element
Of the plot lifeline
And life is truly sublime!

Books and Movies

Books and movies
Might just be
Books and movies
Oscar Wilde even offered the notion
That all art is quite useless
In terms of practicality
Yet the ones who dream
Do employ imagination
To create via creation
And that is why the world needs
Dreamers who dare to dream
No matter how bland life may seem
For the ones who pursue passion
Must proceed with caution
Within a constantly changing world
To leave an indelible mark
And sing like a lark
To give a voice
To the voiceless

Thank You

“Thank you” is polite
Just like a chivalrous knight
And no need to fight

All That Is Left

Mystical magical realism
Innocuous moments
Meeting in the area
Between the mind and the heart
And bringing about the start
Of profoundly profound art
For life is the ultimate canvas

Bloom

Blossom and be awesome
Aspire and inspire
Set an example
And accept Gandhi’s challenge
For promoting positive change
In a constantly changing world
For the people living on Earth
Could form a unified whole
If the citizens and denizens
Practice self-control
