When Life Appears Crazy Or Unfair! ! ! - Poem by A. T Matthias

I want to pick a word and think it through.
To plant an idea and watch it grow.
I want to smile and cry whenever I wanted to.
How will this be possible? Can someone tell me so?

If I answer your question, what will you do?
If I scare away your worries, how about that too?
If need be, you! to watch the world grow.
Take I pray thee! some love stones and throw.

I want to pick my pen and paint the world blue.
Or red, they say either is color of something,
Intriguing. I'd like to carve with my pen you!
To caligraph in my mind the picture that's melting.

If thou with care command my lips to say.
The darkest moment is when the moon comes not at night.
Refusing to show and the stars never glow to stay.
Yet, nothing even then is impossible to do, If I'm right.

I wish the shape of the world is circle.
Maybe then the good tide will pass by me.
I wish I was ennobled and I don't need to prickle.
Maybe life to me won't be unfair as you can see.

Close your eyes and ears but open your mind.
If thou won't hear ten thousand melee shedding tears.
Surprisingly, some with only one part of their whole kind.
Now open your eyes and ears, look around, tears or cheers?

If I know I would have waited a little longer.
I curse the day I was begotten into this world.
I've never achieved tangibles and I'm no younger.
Please someone slay me! Kick me out oh Lord!

If you are a fatty, it's for an utmost purpose.
Or with sugarcane body, there's a reason for it.
If you are black as charcoal, no need to self bellicose.
Or you have a deformed body never think opposite.

And whenever life appears crazy or unfair.
Just one thing, do it for me!
Smile and curb not away from funfair.
Cry if you feel like and the need be.

Now the word I'm choosing is LOVE.
The idea I'd plant is to smile forever.
