ARE YOU COOL?


When I was going to school
I understood the word cool…
Meant that you didn't let petty, jealous people
Bother you…
If you were a man
You gave woman a helping hand.
You were a suave and knew when to talk
You didn't brag or do weird things like stalk.
You didn't steal, cheat or disrespect
you were not prejudice.
You kept your word and didn't lie
You walked your talk and would even die
In the line of fire
For a friend for in the end
It is all about character, consciousness
And keeping your Zen.

Poem of the Day

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
