A Different Perspective
I see intelligence, knowledge and wisdom beyond his age.
Society sees anger, hatred, and eyes filled with rage.
I see someone who is full of success.
I tried to write about you, but the words
weren't special enough.
I tried to sing about you, but the notes
I have fought my battles and overcame them all,
But the current task is not something small.
It encompasses all of me.
How can I smile when 2/3 of me have been
oppressed? Yet I am told to just hold my head
up and do my best.
I have no reason to smile, no reason to cry.
No reason to live, no reason to die.
I have no reason to laugh, no reason to pout
The Most Beautiful Thing
I've seen a flower whose petals refuse to fall.
I've seen a woman who looks like a beautiful queen doll.
I've seen the majestic eagle soar across the sky.
