Me From The Past

When i remember my past, smile like me
It was just like a dreams,
smile like me
Tears drop down my eyes, smile like me
My heart bit up and down, smile like me
If my mouth would be able to express, smile like me
What i have gone through in this life, smile like me
You would know it takes more than life to keep me, smile like me
I can see my past, smile like me
It was a road full of thunders and perbles, smile like me
It was a home of no hope, smile like me
It was extended family under rain without shelter, smile like me
If you hear stories of others you would know that you even more better, smile like me
As i remember my past, smile like me
hardly before one square meal in a day, smile like me
Common primary education was a hot cake, smile like me
There was no body in a high place to look up to, smile like me
But only God we stick unto, smil like me
Nothing was to hold unto, smile like me
Common rag we wear was like esiki ki nto, smile like me
My father try but couldnt make it, smile like me
Then i promise to fufill it, smile like me
Now look at me today, smile like me
Yeah! Yeah! Smile like me
Yah! Yeah! Smile like me.

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
