You, child! [Poem]

You child, listen to what I say:
As soon as adulthood will start
Don’t be afraid, don’t let them take
The purity within your heart!

You take a look into the mirror
And keep in mind what you now see,
Don’t you give in to grown-up terror,
Allow yourself to speak up free!

Tomorrow, when you need to work,
Find what you love and do that thing.
Don’t you let anyone to stop
Your passion, joyfulness and Spring…

Use your own mind and YOU decide
What should happiness mean to you,
Don’t take society as guide,
You be the pure, the world is cruel.

Nevertheless, you should remember
Always be kind and smile at life,
Don’t put down people like September,
Bring them the warmth carried in vibe.

When you get old and watch life backwards,
Be proud of legacy you leave!
You will remember – life has standards,
However you managed to breathe

Among all clouds of foggy smoke
Imposed by rules that are not yours,
You did spread kindness, not the poke
And all your days had open doors…

And when the final moment comes
To close the biggest door of all,
Ask people for you to play drums,
So they remember how to soar.

Your spirit will forever dance
In what image they will keep dear,
They will then learn what means a glance
Of warmth, and they’ll forget the tear.

In turn, your memory will bring
The hope of a better tomorrow,
They will even hear your voice sing
And that will end for them the sorrow.

Therefore, you – today’s child, remember
To love, to give and to stay true,
Respect the young, respect the elder
And always you rely on YOU!

For as you step with every day
And find a way to keep your balance,
Consequently see – so will they
Just witness how you leave a fragrance…

A never-dying scent of youth,
A clear smile, a ray of brilliance,
An evergreen spirit of truth,
The confidence and the resilience

To see the world with better eyes,
Surrounded by the childhood’s magic
And those voices that today cry
Will all embrace a love that’s epic!

Who’s the Queen? [Poem]

“I live for comments,
I breathe the likes,
I dream of shares.”
That’s what it takes?

In today’s world
All wrapped in tech,
We’re told we’re bold
Or turn to wreck.

It’s true, however,
That social media
Can make us clever
If we play trivia.

That interaction,
That off-line action
Causes us stress.

We’re blind to real,
We chase a goal
That’s never clear,
Can’t make us soar!

We look for money
In shallow medium,
We taste the honey
With no criterion

For living life
As we deserve,
For chasing love.
Do we reserve

That priceless time
Which won’t return,
To use it fine,
To make hearts burn?

Let’s take one moment
To understand
What is our purpose
Towards the end.

Do we aspire
Living in words?
Do we inspire
Others to to work?

Where’s the true impact
Of what we do?
Where’s the survival,
Can we seek truth?

It’s all around us!
Yet we crave fake,
Let us re-purpose
And take a break

From this mirage
Which takes us nowhere,
Let’s set our paths,
Embrace the blare

Of a true soul,
That really shares
What we believe
And really cares

About our dreams,
About our lives
And helps us breathe
Those truthful vibes!

Take on-line friendships
In real life,
Assist the hardships
And help them thrive.

Create those bonds
You won’t regret,
Be who you are
And drop the mask!

Travel the world
If you afford,
Provide support
And you’ll breathe worth.

Numbers are fake
In today’s image,
Though life’s at stake
And can face damage.

Let us join hands
For new tomorrow,
Let us build plans
That crush the sorrow

Of those in need
Who fight with danger,
Let’s plant a seed
For new endeavor!

Let us believe
That life has magic,
Let us delete
A pain that’s tragic.

Let’s play the game
Of true compassion,
Erase the blame,
Release the passion!

Let kindness rule
And be the queen,
In all you do
Let it be seen!

Towards yourself,
Towards the others,
And you’ll gain wealth!
And life that matters!
