Be True

I am through with being rude,

Because it does me NO good;

I am finished with floating around,

Since it does damages to my background;

I am done with pleasing everyone,

The reason is simple,

I don’t always have fun;

I have enough of running into a blind valley,

Tigers and snakes are barring me from continuing my journey!

It’s time for me to rise above

the ordinary stuff

so that I am rewarded with authentic love

and become intellectually tough!

Did you see

and agree?

sometimes we need to be little bit selfish

in order to focus on what we could accomplish;

if you admit me a wish,

then I will have to narrow down my desires,

be true

and be specific

in order to catch the fish!

You Are Special

A Panda is cute,

its existence is enlightening;

You are special,

because of you, life is exciting!

Before you are born, your name is considered, selected, and whispered a billion times; before you are ready to rock the world, your future is planned, imaged, and discussed in a favorable fashion; before you are able to tell who you are and what you want, you are taught, touched, spoken to, and written to by the ones who relate to you.

You surprise your loved ones with your innocence, shining smiles, and natural sense of reality. You are precious, and you remind people to appreciate the extraordinary discovery of creating a new life and cherishing it.

You are the gift of the universe, your presence brightens everyone’s life on a daily basis, because you are dynamic, clever, and harmless; and your reaction to the world differentiates yourself from others, which transforms the ordinary  into the unique, the great, and the upright.

A Panda is rare, but you are special! Without you, life makes less sense!

Be proud of being you, accept the life you have! Grow and learn while having enormous fun!
