Organizations organize
 Like origami folds
 To behold
 Mankind’s potential.
 A fundamental fact
 That involves more
 Than plain facts
 For intellect
 Allows for creation
 For the sake of
 As planners plan
 To improve and assist
 While also avoiding
 Pitfalls that would result in


A font type
 Spirits rising
 Above and beyond,
 And weathering the tempest
 To bring about
 A new world,
 And beginning again,
 Time and time again,
 Until the very end,
 While being one
 With the deep blue sea,
 And singing angelically
 With a beautiful voice,
 Without a Faustian choice,
 So that a song from the soul
 Establishes a unified whole


 Much more than a day
 A song
 The unknown future
 Mysteriously enigmatic
 Entrancing as well
 For only time will tell
 About what lies ahead,
 And what not to do instead


A glamorous life
 Might appear opulent,
 But sometimes such beauty
 Is nothing more than
 Superficial aesthetics.
 In fact, working daily,
 And trying hard,
 Is almost like writing from the Bard,
 Especially since Shakespearean plays
 Play out like life itself,
 So people could feel comfortable
 Feeling authentic
 Rather than problematic


The willpower to love
The willingness to live
Opportunities to forgive
Put the past aside
For time does pass by
And even sometimes flies.
The courage to stand up
And tackle adversity
Demonstrates maturity.
Life does end,
Yet people can still make amends
If they have the willpower
To do so,
So go ahead and go!

Metropolitan Lifestyle

Life in the city
Metro buses
Public transportation
Transporting and leaving legacies
Along the way
Being artistic
Civilly disobedient
Pursuing passion passionately
Street Life
And all people living
Their lives their own way
Wherever they are
Within humanity


Life as a journey
Is an Odyssey
Full of twists and turns
And full of mystery
For the future is unknown
People can discover
Meaning within their lives
And why they were born
By continuing traveling
On the figurative road
And by venturing
Into the Unknown
Until they realize
That they are who they are
Depending upon
Their own self-perception


Through The Turning Point
Past the point of no return
Reverence and respect
Recipient of recognition
Dancing through life
Busy spinning
Without becoming dizzy
Pirouette with a silhouette
And dance like no one else


Not getting paid to think
Creating via imagination
Never underestimating
The power of the mind
Appreciating all that is sublime
Not wasting time
Worrying about bygone eras
Living life
Starting now
And that is how
Thinkers think


Not just a place
To store coins and cash
Signing up to take on
Challenges through endurance
Taking a stand
And creating through hands
To demonstrate maturity
Within the realness of reality
