I Choose The Mountain - Poem by john tiong chunghoo

i choose the mountain
because it is there
it drums up my spirit
i choose the sea
because it is there
it takes us to yonder land
for fun and waves
of memories to dive and revel in
i choose you
because you are there
with your smile
lightening the task of day
i choose the sun because
it brightens up the universe
gives us life and hope
i choose the moon because
it beautifies night
and fills us with the
grace of procreation
our ethereal shadows
move across the wall
under its glare
ebb and flow with a
tide of passions
i choose this country
because it is here and has
what we all desire to make it great
