Philo Yan Poems


The skies have turned from black to blue,
what on Earth has happened to you?
Did you forget to take your break?
The morning's here, go back to bed!

Loud rumbling from it's core.
Magnificent mane of golden brown,
He is a king but wears no crown.

When people you know don't seem to care
When you start feeling that you are dirt
Which way you turn, Life seemed unfair
