The Sky

The sky is a strange thing you see,
Stranger than anyone could ever be.
You would've notice it's always up there,
Not like something that's lost which could be anywhere.
Sometimes the sky is blue in color,
Sometimes it's grey or darker.
In the daytime we can see the sun shining,
And at night thousand of stars twinkling.
The sky is very high as everyone already know,
And from it the cool wind blows.
It has fluffy clouds that could imitate
A duck , a cat or even a plate.
Things are always falling from the sky
Rain, comets and things that fly.
The time to stop is now or never,
Cos' like the sky I could go on forever
And ever and ever and ever.....

Take What Comes

Don't expect perfection
For you will never find it here
This is Earth, not Heaven
With Charity and Cheer
Take what comes
The Good and The Bad
Don't start whimpering
When you're dissappointed
With a Person or a Thing
Everyone is human
Dont be too critical
When someone fails
Remember that you too
Are sometimes fallible
Keep your ideals
In your Heart
And your standarts high
But don't loose Faith
When things go wrong
Just let the storm blow by
Do not ask too much of Life
Or read beyond your range
Learn to aspect and live
Content with what you cannot change
