A Quest to Remember

March 3, 2008
By Jahmal B., Rochester, NY

come on children
pick up your feet
we are moving towards a shining truth
our voyage has just begun
so wake up
time to keep moving
time to march with no fear
no caution
we are in pursuit of happiness

come on people
break from your hopes
just once
our voyage has just begun
so stand up
time to move out
time to stride on
don’t give up
we are pursuing our happiness

come on friend
join me today
we’ll move on
we’ll move out together
we will lift one another up
on our pursuit of happiness
so give a helping hand
reach out together
as a group
our journey

*this poem was inspired by the auto biography The Pursuit of Happiness by Chris Gardner
