3: Where I’m From Part 1 I am from a country of more than a billion Where development is right there Stringing together a population Of at least a four digit million Where land is to scarce to share Many lack good education I am from a people full of happiness Even when they do not have anything They no naught of greed Some are so malnourished they have no ability to do work that requires finesse But courage is what is driving The people full of belief I am from great parents Whom have taught right from wrong And taught that honesty is that greatest trait of man’s character They have taught that hard work will be rewarded Whether then, or in the future I am from India and America I am a true melting pot within myself The flag I am is not of any country or organization I am a flag of freedom, honesty, and courage I am a normal human being Not like the likes of Tesla Or Einstein But I do have my character And my tenacity I am a tiger When angry Raging like a fire I am a deba In every situation All these things I am But conglomerated I am Danish Singh.
5: My mother's kitchen | In my mother’s kitchen There is more than just food Love is radiated out of the oven Causing confusion Between my heart and stomach Whenever strange but wonderful smells come out of the kitchen My mind goes into a trance In it goes by images of fried chicken And makes me dance With excitement There are many secret ingredients Many which teach of important lessons in life Such as honesty That cause my thoughts to fill with suffice With this wonderful advice In my mother’s kitchen I see my mother working I watch with wonder at how she knows What to put in each dish And how to make it lavish In my mother’s kitchen The future looks empty And bleak Because, when everyone is gone It will be alone I hope that day does not come for a long time So I can savor memories like lime My mother’s kitchen has been a shining light In a long day I look forward to more days of savory food and fillet.

7: From Mother to Son There is a connection between a mother and son That not one person but the two can understand This attachment is as strong as the gravitational force of the sun It goes through ups and downs like the popularity of a rock band A mother gives her son all her knowledge On how to tackle life There to help through hard times A mother always supports her son A mother teaches her son to live life to the fullest But to be careful While in the process of learning Because life really is a giant classroom The son takes in the advice Sometimes being stubborn And paying no heed Forgetting that mothers are right Well, 90 percent of the time I am a son Living life with my mother Enjoying every day like a white dove Because, of all the love from my mother.
8: April Showers Bring May Flowers
9: Ode to GSMST Oh GSMST what a school are you Full of great opportunities and wonderful people You know what hard work is like the back of your hand You are too gracious in giving homework You are a beauty and a beast Making us smarter day by day Irritating us day by day Killing us with homework and studying day by day Nurturing us for the future day by day You can be nice But also cold hearted like ice You never answer the same question twice So, if we do not listen we pay a price You give us projects like every day You put us in an environment Where two months afterwards There is no such thing as Vans Only the square root of answer Regardless of all this You are still a second home To all of us students Participating, in functioning you.
11: it's always spring in a mother's heart | Language Arts Limerick It is math with words Stringing words like with cords Its computation is grammar Not at all Language Art’s glamour For that right is reserved to many writings-the free birds.

13: Stopping by the Woods on a Snowy Evening By: Robert Frost Whose woods these are I think I know. His house is in the village though; He will not see me stopping here To watch his woods fill up with snow. My little horse must think it queer To stop without a farmhouse near Between the woods and frozen lake The darkest evening of the year. He gives his harness bells a shake To ask if there is some mistake. The only other sound's the sweep Of easy wind and downy flake. The woods are lovely, dark and deep. But I have promises to keep, And miles to go before I sleep, And miles to go before I sleep. | Key know- this color represents feminine rhyme And miles to go before- repition Between the woods-imagery village-symbolism for society sleep metaphor for death
14: It's a beautiful day, don't let it get away. | Song Analysis It another day in paradise-repetition She...there-metaphor for how scoiety does not help poor people that are in need she's got blisters on some of her sole feet-imagery Just thnik about it-caesura
15: Another Day in Paradise- Phil Collins Part one She calls out to the man on the street "Sir, can you help me? It's cold and I've nowhere to sleep Is there somewhere you can tell me?" He walks on, doesn't look back He pretends he can't hear her He starts to whistle as he crosses the street She's embarrassed to be there Oh, think twice, it's just another day for For you and me in paradise Oh, think twice, it's just another day For you, you and me in paradise Just think about it She calls out to the man on the street He can see she's been cryin' She's got blisters on the soles of her feet She can't walk but she's tryin' Oh, just think twice, it's just another day For you and me in paradise Oh, yes think twice, it's just another day For you, you and me in paradise Just think about it, just think about it | Part two Oh Lord, is there nothing more anybody can do? Oh Lord, there must be something you can say You can tell by the lines on her face You can see that she's been there Probably been moved on from every place 'Cause she didn't fit in there Oh, yes think twice, it's just another day For you and me in paradise Oh, yes think twice, it's just another day For you, you and me in paradise Just think about it, just think about it It's just another day For you and me in paradise It's just another day For you and me in paradise It's just another day For you and me in paradise It's just another day For you and me in paradise It's just another day For you and me It's another day For you and me It's another day For you and me in paradise In paradise
