‘ Health Is Wealth ‘

Rich or not
We all have got
Chances in lifetime
To live quite sublime

More rich people become richer
And the majority poor more poorer
It’s not how much money brings boost
But having enjoyed life not its cost

Healthy body makes an active mind
Once sick can’t make good things rewind
Beware of taking too much of everything
Good health is wealth and the best thing

B) Caption from the story The Legend of Zelda(Bermuda Triangle) By: Narutotoro

She followed it and found some dirt. She now used the flashlight to look at the book for the spell circle and incantation, although the soil was frozen hard so it was difficult to trace anything on it. After a frustrating half-hour, she managed to draw a spell circle.

Then she recited the spell,

'In everything that exists
a doorway is always present
it may lead in or lead out the way
to and from any destination we go.'

Cleo jumped at a noise she heard. But it was only a lone doe that caused it. Why am I freaking out? she thought. Seriously Cleo, you're being paranoid. She continued.

'Entering a new phase
may meant betterment
and going out from there
is a choice for one to decide.
A portal is sort of conscience
that shows the consequences
if one dares proceed with wit
then must take the right step.'

After a moment, a strange glow enveloped her and she vanished from this realm.

Enthusiasm inside will help me through.

Moving to meet all challenges with might,
Onward to graduation becomes my delight.”

Web.21 Jan.2013. < http: // In the movie Karate Kid when little Dre Parker moves to China and he is lost. He gets bullied and beat up. When he meets his mentor, Mr.Han, he is taught how to use karate. Mr. Han is a very wise man, which the mentor roll is usually. Mr. Han not only taught Dre lessons, but skills, aided him in his time of need, and helped him face his enemies and defeat them.

Is a master
who molds
his student

a master like him.
Have you met your mentor? '
(Marvin Brato Sr) Approach to the Inmost Cave The approach to the inmost cave is the stage in the archetypal journey where the hero starts planning and approaching the climax of the journey. In this stage the hero '[The hero] must use every lesson learned to survive.The hero often has disheartening setbacks while approaching the cave.[They are] torn apart by challenges, which allows [them] to put [themselves] back together in a more effective form for the ordeal to come.' (Peterson) Approach to the Inmost Cave Ordeal 'The Ordeal is the critical moment in every story' (Peterson) It is the life or death point in a story, and the journey is on the verge of failure. 'The crisis, a halfway point, is a divide in the hero’s journey: the top of the mountain, the heart of the forest, the depth of the ocean, the most secret place in his soul. Everything in the trip has lead up to this point, and everything after is about going home.' (Peterson) The Reward Conclusion In this image explaining endocytosis
I can connect crossing the threshold with it. 'A process of cellular ingestion by which the plasma membrane folds inward to bring substances into the cell.' (thefreedictionary) I think this is symbolic to crossing the threshold in the archetypal journey because a substance, from outside of the cell, goes into the cell. Much like crossing the threshold if we imagine that the cell is the special world. After the substance is in the cell it also plans on returning to where it came from, just like the ordinary world.

A bard always inscribe…

A verse or two to convey innate sentiments,
that rhyme into romantic expressions.

Like an ode that tells a story of love,
or a melancholic sonnet about a dying heart.

Quite an elegy of suspense depicting courage,
better a limerick of an adventurous quest.

And best couplet enthusing excitements
of an epic account of human battles
narrate explicitly into poetic phrase.

This chop made me think of this poem..

Deep Blue Sea

Just like a deep blue sea,
a mysterious being I am.
Carefree as the waves,
quite careless as it rolls
unto the shores of realities.
Exciting displays of curiosity:
love, fantasy and ecstasy.
I like to venture while young,
not just for mere pleasure but
endulging freedom in surfing life.

God made the deep blue sea,
as outstanding as He made me.
Blissful waters run deep,
reserve for my adventures.
In waiting for the first times,
exotic acts I like to taste;
life is nil if it is put to waste.

Being like a deep blue sea,
unknown treasures in its breast
till someone meets the challenge
indulge fishing in my deep blue sea,
love for me remains a mystery.

A youth of labor with an age of ease!

by Oliver Goldsmith
Happy Old Face

Profession has inspired you

rendering service to the clients

on the status of their health status

made sure that your analysis are correct

in which the doctors based their diagnosis

days in your life have been all work

as it come to retirement today.

Today marks your honorable exit

on reaping what you sow for years

rise and claim the accolade you deserve

nothing ever more uplifting than retirement

on this day onwards you shall see happy old face.

I) Callous definition/meaning


Often times the pain stings
Left part of the arm it clings
In the middle sternum lingers
Valve of aorta seems calcify
Infusing blood so irregular
A life flows in intermittent.

Many times breath is shallow
Or becomes rapidly gasping
Risk is enclosing to the end
As though death is enticed
Groping into myriad veins
And whispers sad lullaby.

Birth itself a mark of death
Reasons cannot even defy
A reality that is destined
That life has eventual end
On this earth for all of us.

Advice To My Son

May tomorrow makes you realize my boy
In this world life is not a toy
Can you not listen to my lecturing
Hear me when I am talking
At this moment in time
Exert your effort to shine
Let your energy flow freely
At things worthwhile not deadly
Now is the time for you to stand
