He Had A Dream- Poem

He had a dream, yes he did. That races would be equal, nothing left said. He had a dream called civil rights. Lets unite, lets not fight. Martin had a dream one day. Martin had much to say. We cheered him on. For Martin was not wrong. He though Blacks and Whites could get along. He may have been killed but his dream lived on. Now here we are, living his dream. Us people are no longer ripped by the seam. Nor separated by different colors.

Yolo-Poem

Your born you live you die. You smile you walk you talk and cry. But within those years you live, you must think and do positive. Yolo, Yolo, you only live once. Yolo, Yolo, you have to take the chance. Yolo, Yolo, you only live once. Yolo, Yolo, you only live once. Yolo, Yolo, you have to take the chance. Do it while you can, have fun while it lasts. Live, love, forget because the past is in the past. Yolo, Yolo, you only live once. Yolo, Yolo, you have to take the chance. Yolo, Yolo, you only live once. Yolo, Yolo, you have to take the chance. 

NeverLand-Poem

There is a place, where you could go. Where you never, never say no. Where you have fun, when happiness has no end. Where you live forever with family, and your friends. You laugh and play until the end of the day, its the place where you want to stay. Neverland, Neverland, is where you ought to be. Neverland, Neverland, for you and me. Neverland, Neverland, is where you ought to be. Neverland, Neverland, for you and me. Take me to a place of cotton candy clouds, a place of forever, a place of no doubt. Sprinkle me with pixie dust so that we can fly, in Neverland you will never want to cry. Neverland, Neverland, is where you ought to be, Neverland, Neverland, for you and me. Neverland, Neverland, is where you ought to be, Neverland, Neverland, for you and me.
