Organization Transformation Formatting to fit Upon a page And also in real life Because of social Expectations Despite such standards, Challenging the status quo Helps people know How people truly are So format oneself By being oneself Unapologetically
Residing at home Sometimes by the sea Any land fairer than thee Might help tremendously, Yet home is where the hearth Combines with the heart To remind the mind And soothe the soul That places do stem From deep within While people assist Their fellow brethren
Extra classes Present extra opportunities To grow And expand the mind, And taking education For granted Is not the proper way To learn, So prepare to gain knowledge, And acquire the tools To impact and improve The world, And only if students Have the heart to go Beyond standard curriculums
Traveling planes Geometric figures Horizontal and vertical Sometimes diagonal. Take charge, And direct oneself As a captain And a pilot Of the only life, For each individual Has a narrative to tell Without the fear Of the unfathomable
Inspirational Through knowledge acquisition Learn forevermore
Defy the odds. Go beyond The call of duty. Make the choice To share voices Collectively As united Individuals To help promote Harmony Against tyranny.

Until the decision Has been made To hold oneself Accountable, Challenges that lie ahead Might become Insurmountable. Accept both reality As well as modernity, For change happens all the time, And now is the time To utilize the mind To benefit all For all time
Circumnavigate the Surrounding areas. Travel far and wide Without the need to hide. Enjoy the ride And have fun along the way Because life itself Is an adventure If people choose to venture Beyond what they know, And live life fully Using their minds To map their own journeys
In spite of solitude And feelings of isolation People can still undergo Lifelong maturation, And have the determination To take a stand With the power of their own hands, And express gratitude For all that they have achieved And will do Until the normal And natural end
Crisp brown lumber Beds that help with slumber Rich and fine wood Reminding all that is good Chocolaty smooth Wardrobes that improve The costumes that clothe And dress to impress So that people could Do more than they would
Never Fade Out
Even as time flies, Clocks keep ticking One second at a time. Life itself might feel short, But that involves the Quality of life. Spending time figuratively, And also metaphorically, Subtracts units from the Normal ending, But usage of such currency Wisely Can help people realize The precious value Of life itself. Hopefully people will remove rage, And instead, stay calm, like a sage
