Vivacious Stupendous Spirits high Defy thy sky More than I For the lively Live freely Lift oneself Be thyself No matter what city Or residence Where one resides For the world Is the home of all
Sunrise sunset Sunrise sunset Cyclical cycle Begin again And again Darkness giving way To light And enigmatic life Life might appear meaningless But existence does have a reason Why else would human beings Come into the world For anyone can uphold Gandhi’s challenge Of looking in the mirror And changing for the better Dare to dream Rather than bind oneself to certainty Become certainty avoidant!
Many would seek opulence Grandeur And majesty Yet wonder still lies all around Unless harsh realities Veil such beauty Nevertheless, If one could do more Than simply see with the eyes And open hearts Luminescent knowledge would Pour in And will those hearts To provide Contentment, Peace, And Tranquility For the brain that craves too much Loses its train of thought Unless it learns that Enough really is enough And sufficiency is sufficient
Estival Festival Fun in the Sun Twelfth Night or What You Will Feste playing along During this poetic song And it is another day of sun For the dreamers who seize the day Every day All and all
Time stretches Across the universe The world is diverse Read a poetic verse Celebrate the melting pot Of the world with no need to improvise Materialize reality
