Include

Include via inclusion.
Embrace change
And improve
Surroundings
As well as oneself.
Help and assist
While resisting
Negativity,
And strive to better
The world,
And that itself
Is a choice.
Let voices
Vocalize
To help realize
The precious value
Of accepting
Acceptance

Not Always Gone Forever

Even when grieving,
Never stop truly living.
Keep on believing!

Off to the Pier

Life is sometimes hard,
Yet there is no need for fear.
Have fun at the pier!

Being

The best way to live
Is to free oneself from strife
And do one’s own best

Standard

Rather than standing,
Set a standard for oneself,
And benefit all

What Has Been Re(a)d

Vivacious passion
Fiery intensity
The red carpet
Leading to the red room
Literary cinema
Pull the curtain
For the big reveal
And stay at the edge
Or else what has been seen
Might proceed to the following scene

Changing

Changing involves more
Than simply changing outfits.
It involves being fit
Because of the notion of
“Survival of the Fittest.”
Adaptation is also much more
Than a film that features Meryl Streep
Because no one knows
What life has in store,
So prepare,
And change with care

The Best Performance

Get into the act
Of being responsible
Ready, set, action!

Core Design

Center of it all
More than having a ball
For life is not
A fairy tale,
Yet people can still
Wish upon wishing wells,
And allow time to tell
What life has in store
Beyond doing Cinderella’s chores.
In fact,
Life is only boring
If people suffer from ennui,
So live life fully,
And simply be

Parallelogram

Four lines
All parallel
Wishes for health
And feeling well
Time does tell
That magical spells
Involve fantasy
That conflict
with reality,
Especially beyond
Post-modernity,
Yet while publication
Is overrated,
And some authors
Are outdated,
Rectangular books
And lines of poetry
Can still enrich
And enchant
With no need to rant,
And align readers
And audiences
To celebrate
The gift of life
Narratively
