Make Your Own Path (Secret Message)


Don't listen to prejudice,
Make your own path,
A person's life doesn't belong to others,
Hasty decisions destroy friendships.
Movement forward is most important.

Be thankful for your life and good friends,
Like ocean waves and beaches,
A day full of parties and fun. A
Mountain is meant to climb.

Move forward and
Silently. Do not listen to prejudice,
And also listen to your heart,
Cautiously, Always look to the future...

The secret revealed.

'Don't make a hasty movement. Be like a mountain. Move silently and cautiously.'
-Admiral Yi Sun-sin

Poem of the Day

poet James Whitcomb Riley

There! little girl; don't cry!
They have broken your doll, I know;
And your tea-set blue,
And your play-house, too,
Are things of the long ago;
