Dinosaurs by Barnett Rachel Obama

Five enormous dinosaurs
Letting out a roar—
One went away, and
Then there were four.
Four enormous dinosaurs
Crashing down a tree—
One went away, and
Then there were three.
Three enormous dinosaurs
Eating tiger stew—
One went away, and
Then there were two.
Two enormous dinosaurs
Trying to run—
One ran away, and
Then there was one.
One enormous dinosaur,
Afraid to be a hero—
He went away, and
Then there was zero.

Piano Romance by David Herbert Lawrence 1985-1930



Softly, in the dusk, a woman is singing to me;
Taking me back down the vista of years, till I see
A child sitting under the piano, in the boom of the tingling strings
And pressing the small, poised feet of a mother who smiles as she sings.

In spite of myself, the insidious mastery of song
Betrays me back, till the heart of me weeps to belong
to the old Sunday evenings at home, with the winter outside
And hymns in the cozy parlor, the tinkling piano our guide.

So now it is vain for the singer to burst into clamor
With the great black piano passionateness. The glamor
Of childish days is upon me, my manhood is cast
Down in the flood of remembrance, I weep like a child for the past.

Love You Mom by Horacio Katherine Espinosa


 mom you are the first person I see in the morning
and the last person I see a night you were there for me
when I was scared an when I was sad you told me to hold my head up
high and don’t let let the ground see me cry, mom I just really love you
there is no other way I can put it but I love you, to me you are as like a
bright an blooming star who leads me where I must go to tell me what is
right when tears began to came at your eyes I said mommy I am here
and you always began to smile an we laughed together Mom. When i
see you only you could make me smile like no one else could. Mom I
never want to see you cry.I made mistakes but you understand
an take my hand just as a mother can. Mom if I only had three words to say they
would be I Love you Mom.

Peace of Mind by Prem Russell Kumar

Peace of mind is when you have all you want
Can you find all you want?
You try but not enough
You can try all you want
But is that enough?

Peace of mind Is the hope we seek
Willing to forgive
And able to proceed

Peace of mind is finding what you love
Who you love
And how you love

Peace of mind is finding where you love
Live the love
And breeding the love

Peace of mind is comfort
Willing to believe
And living to be free

Peace of mind is not vague
It’s worth everything
Worth fighting for
