The World I Give
Pain is exactly what I may look like,
But my family raised me with joy
In my heart.
I came into this world like a big bang
With a big bag of goodies.
In it are precious stones: diamonds
Gold, and jade.
Everyday everybody gets one.
Just gimme some love.
That’s my currency for trade.
Plus, you get a bonus smile 🙂
I wear a sad face but not my heart.
I only woke up feeling sad for a world
Where humans and joy play hide and seek.
