* * * Stay alive ♥


Stay alive

Because you have to do
Not only for your kids
Also for the people you lead
Because you have to feed

Stay alive

Till you reach grand’s grand
Not only for your husband
Also for the people you treat in well
Because you have the best will

Stay alive

Because you have to be
Not only for your family
Also for the people you care
Because you know how to share

Stay alive

Because you can treat people’s stress
You can heal people’s sickness
You can help poor people
You can let everything settle

Long live!
Dedicated to ♥ semhar sebhatu ♥

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
