Peace. Love. Happiness.
Love to feel the joy of a newborn child seeking bright lights in the delivery room.
Has it not been born before of an animal
or insect?
Has it not seen the horrors of our world
circling the dark unknown galaxy
like trying to describe the taste of a Milky Way or the smell of an orange?
How about how seeds feel and why the sun's rays are always so angry.
Test me and stamp a red zero across my
forehead and tell me I mean nothing
But I know that oranges
and seeds
and the sun
and zeros
will always be round.

thank you so much. the way my instructor had us write it was in a shape. he gave us a drawn circle and told us to make it into any shape and write the poem on the lines of the shap. i made mine a peace sign. i feel like if i could have shown a picture it would have made a little more sense haha
