Favorite Quote:
What will you do with your one wild and precious life? - Mary Oliver

This is a song for the women
A song for the men.
A song for the children,
And for all the past tense.
It is not mine,
I have too many of these.
This is for all of us-
The spectrum of colors and souls.
I hope we will know,
Not every side is good.
And that one should never assume
Another’s worth.
I hope we walk tall,
Wherever we go.
That we remain unafflicted,
And speak of our woes.
For all of us-
We are part of the game.
Rules are undefined my friends and my foe so,
Dance in the rain.
There is beauty,
In hidden spots.
We think for ourselves,
Lean when we must
Don’t think too hard,
But make of this what you will.
This is a song-
For all of you.

I wrote this a while ago, (probably after gym class, waiting for the bell to ring) and I've always thought about submitting it and now I can!  The title is self explanetory.  I hope you enjoy the poem.  :)
