New Start New Life Start Over Rather than Game Over Life is not a game per se But rather a gift This very day is a new beginning For the day has begun Whether or not there is sun And hope can light the way To a better future If one chooses to Begin being optimistic
Ancestor Forefather Precursor Express curiosity And hold on tight Bear through struggles Even as mere muggles And become The people People were meant to be
Join, But Check First
Dreams allow For hope Goals And Aspirations Despite dreams Being deferred People can still Pursue Passions Respectfully And Realistically, Therefore, Check before dreaming, And be careful before Choosing to join For a cover is not always the book And something with appeal Might not necessarily Be Ideal Be Real, and Be Free!
Reoccurring reoccurrence Happening time and time again Literary motifs Like decorative laurel wreaths Placed upon the head While knowledge enters the mind And learning happens again and again Until students who study Become learned And empower themselves Through the gift of education
Optimism Opposing Pessimism Binary Opposition Forming literary theory Find fundamental facts Rather than denotative definitions And let creative expression Speak from the soul For “is” is the way it is!
Environmental hydration Cause and effect Sounding cliché Nevertheless, Water offers The gift of life A gift that could be Taken away At any given time Swim freely Within the ocean of time And try to do Rather than exist And that is the Lake effect Of water And the greatest gift
Bolt Of lightening Electromotive force Forcing Implies Pressure Yet measure for measure Suggests that people Can still take pleasure In being who they Were meant to be Instead of being Bogged down By Reality That is the true reality!
