The way we are


its simple being us
i never new why we work so hard
teach others what we learn
do things that should be done
get a grip of life and never let go
we do things that we pick up
learn from mistakes that we have done
forgive others
hear more
see more
be more
make friends
sow a patch
read to others
learn how we eat, sleep and move
never trip up
don't look down look forwards
get real
never be somebody your not
be that person you want to be
enjoy what you have and who you have
never take things that are not yours
give back what you have stolen
help those who need help
ask for help once in a while
look up when it rains feel that dropp against your face
hold your hands up to feel the rain, wind and sun
don't let go of reality
make a friend
be a friend
help a friend
save a friend
all you need is luck and a smile
so go on your path
sow your knowledge
and never look back

poet Oliver Wendell Holmes

WHAT flower is this that greets the morn,
Its hues from Heaven so freshly born?
With burning star and flaming band
It kindles all the sunset land:
