My favourite poem



Both Sides now
Composed by Joni Mitchell

Bows and flows of angel hair and ice cream castles in the air
And feather canyons everywhere, I’ve looked at cloud that way.
But now they only block the sun, they rain and snow on everyone.
So many things I would have done but clouds got in my way.

I’ve looked at clouds from both sides now,
From up and down, and still somehow
It’s cloud illusions I recall.
I really don’t know clouds at all.

Moons and junes and ferris wheels, the dizzy dancing way you feel
As every fairy tale comes real; I’ve looked at love that way.
But now it’s just another show. you leave ’em laughing when you go
And if you care, don’t let them know, don’t give yourself away.

I’ve looked at love from both sides now,
From give and take, and still somehow
It’s love’s illusions I recall.
I really don’t know love at all.

Tears and fears and feeling proud to say I love you right out loud,
Dreams and schemes and circus crowds, I’ve looked at life that way.
But now old friends are acting strange, they shake their heads, they say
I’ve changed.
Something’s lost but something’s gained in living every day.

I’ve looked at life from both sides now,
From win and lose, and still somehow
It’s life’s illusions I recall.
I really don’t know life at all.

Wake up WORLD!!

Composed by: Azm


Who is taller they ask one another
Competing to reach the sky; rest doesn't matter
The greenery destroyed; out of sight
Glass, bricks and stones; their unlimited height
no forest not a single tree
Development they say; I don't agree
No fresh air to breathe
Selfish people; their selfish greed
Poor innocent creatures chased away
Not even left with their home to stay
How ugly would be to think so
Wealthy ones high and the rest low
They should get back to where they belong
Realize that they're harming others; doing the wrong
The dark areas need more emphasis
Not to focus on what already exists
We want our healthy lives back
Greenery around shouldn't lack
Dreaming for better lives and better future
No ugly structure but be embraced by the nature
