Remember This

Remember This short poem

There are some things I have come to believe.
Believe me when I say, I am not deceived.
Sometimes the good die young, and never receive.
Unfairness exists, and persists, though ill conceived.

Sometimes everybody gets pushed around, or cheated.
Never sink in the sand, or give up when you’re mistreated .
There is never a reason to remain forever defeated.
Be strong and fight against evils, before they’re repeated.
It’s okay to be highly noticed, but better to be needed.

If you decide to reach for the brightest and highest star;
Remember to love and support those not very far.

An education might bring you the best credit card.
But the best education will always be its own reward.

Some are fortunate with opportunities they simply refuse.
Too many of us are unfortunately denied and abused.

You do not have to feel like a sadly stricken victim.
Just have faith, look up, and stand up like a victor!

Remember When He Was I short poem

When he was I, And I was he. We laid crying in the desert sands. Holding hands. Our friends burning nearby. The cities burning in the sky. Laughing, he squeezed my hand. Crying, he squeezed the trigger. Oh, how we
