Did you ever


Did you ever actually sit and watch the sea give birth to the sun
Or slide down a rainbow just for fun
Or Look at the mountains and stick out your tongue
And say you will be dust when I still having fun
When I landed on this planet I did not ask why
I said hey look at this its life going by
I knew deep inside eternal was I
And that I will live on forever and never die
Its fun to be me in love with my self
You should try it some time its good for your health
Now I try all the time to give Joy to this place
But every time I do I get slapped in the face
But the sting makes me sing
I just will not stand down
You could not pay me enough
Walk this earth with a frown
I know I know this stuff gets intense
But I'm not the kind to sit on the fence
Its Good or its Bad, Its Black or it white
its Hot or its cold its Day or its night
so many walk with there head hanging down
All I want to do is spread joy around
To all the kings horses and all the kings men
To there sister and brother and all of there friends

Poem of the Day

poet Wilfred Owen

All sounds have been as music to my listening:
Pacific lamentations of slow bells,
The crunch of boots on blue snow rosy-glistening,
Shuffle of autumn leaves; and all farewells:
