The Better Life
Sara and Kabir, I don't dream of a better life for you
You already have the "Best" Life, it's true
You run around and scream on the up swing
You play with flowers,stones and other little sweet things
You carry your school bag, what an overload
I wish your books changed to pink and blue butterflies
Your pencils to magical wands and erasers to green fireflies
I wish you were in wonderland, for the young and bored
Hope your exams, turn to a game where the losers always win
I don't aspire for you to be an ace student,
But to understand the wonders of the Arts and Science
Break, Bend, Mould, Create and then you will learn and rise
You have a better life, my sweet cupcakes
Share it with others, give away your better life
Then you will discover the beauty of your existence
Where discoveries are made and poems rhymed
I have no dreams for you, will you hold it against me?
Each one must have their own (Grandpa said that)
I just have one expectation, it is important to me
Please be naughty, nice and simply - the best beings you can be.
