We live in a concrete jungle and steel treetops. When the human heart is weary it turns to words to color its world. Though the art of poetry has little significance at this time where mediocrity blooms out of incognizant of our truth as both human and being, the true testament of our soul is expressed in the words and voice of the youth that will carry on the torch of life. This poem collection expresses the inner recesses of these children’s make believe world where they feel safe. There is no judgment, only praises for they recreate the world through their words. Relish the words for surely it will add another dimension to your soul. Laugh, sigh, cry, all these are emotions. Emotions are never wrong. These children are never wrong for they speak the truth of this generation. Reeking of hope, leaking with joy, somber sometimes, hopeful all the time.

Passing Gas in Class

As I sit on my chair in class
My classmate keeps on passing gas
I always tell him, “Can you stop?”
Because your gas will really pop
Suddenly the bell rings loudly
And the gas-passer farts sadly

And I heard a falling bark
My dad is using the drill
And there’s a noise in the grill
And I heard another noise
No, it’s just the fighting boys
