Let my poems be like roses
Let my eyes see true faces!
Trees are like hands of the earth
Hills are like breasts of the earth!
I would like to fly like the birds
I like to speak with the animals!
Clouds are like scattered cottons
I like to watch planets’ motions!
Fishes move faster than ships
Even a football, the donkey kicks!
Like a pregnant lady the duck walks
Like smoke appear the fogs!
No word is there to praise the moon
Stars look like the tigers’ eyes!
We must rise early to watch the sun
No rhyme is there to admire the sun!
Earth is only a portion of the oceans
Without oceans there won’t be seasons!
Who knows the worth of this earth?
We do know the secret of our death!
I also agree that there is a creator
Humans may be the super creatures!
I do know about my friends’ natures
How can I know about my future?
