Oy! - Poem by April Dan Chi Ho

I was inspired from a melody which I heard by accident somewhere downtown in Coral Beach, Thailand. Then I wrote down some text based on the melody. It sounds weird but it is fun though.

Oy! Hopeless bird! Fly! Fly!
Fly! Hopeless bird! Fly! High!
Look around!
You aren't barked in an oven.
You are not in a cage.
Just spread your wings and fly.
You will be alright! Just fly!

Oy! Worthless fish! Swim! Swim!
Swim! Worthless fish! Swim! Deep!
Look around!
You are not fried in a pan.
You aren't in an aquarium.
Just lash your tail and swim.
You will be alright! Just swim!

Oy! Depressed girl! Run! Run!
Run! Depressed girl! Run! Fast!
Look around!
You aren't written by anyone.
You are not in a novel.
Just stand on your feet and run.
You will be alright! Just run!

Life is a puzzle!
And you can always solve it!
Life is an adventure!
And you can always experience it!
Just fly! Hopeless bird! Fly! High!
Just swim! Worthless fish! Swim! Deep!
Just run! Depressed girl! Run! Fast!
