Random Poem:

The Sky You Were Born Under

I was born under a bright blue
cloudy sky with a happy sun.
Everyday like this gives a clue
of who I am and what I've done.
Reborn under the friendly sky,
I start to imagine paradise...
feeling happiness and energy close by.
This weather melts my chamber of ice.
I dream of this sky and time,
wishing the cold windy air gone
so earth may start to grow lime
and push the snow and ice beyond.
From the sun I am reborn
Letting me grow and keeping me warm.
