2: Language Arts | The words spin in my mind, Black on white speaks a silent command, the war had begun. With my sword, I created soldiers of gray, To fight on the snowy plane. Days pass, there is no change, Save a red binary 4.
3: The roar of the oven, The freshly-cut vegetables. The freshly cooked pork, My mother entering the room. This is my mother’s kitchen. | My Mother's Kithchen
4: Self Respect | Sometimes I dance, sometimes I don’t. Sometimes I listen, sometimes I won’t. Depend on my mood, I might even fight. It just depends on my heart. I’m not (your average), stereotypical nerd. And I ain’t the geek next door. But I learned to follow logic Because I am a human. I’m not your average, stereotypical nerd. My worth is not determined by how strong I am. No matter what you say, I will always be Me.
5: Tribute to GSMST | The great white walls of stone Within holds the key to the future Leading young children to their Destiny. This is GSMST. The stairs of understanding That we all must climb To reach our full potential. This is GSMST. Never resting, our fate Carrying the future We must always do our best. This is GSMST.
6: chAngE by Miwa | (chAngE) I won’t yield and I won’t be swept awayI want to stay honest to how I feel now(chAngE) No matter how many times I am rebornI will run while embracing my sadnessI encountered a pleasant betrayal but I won’t be swayedIt’s not enough, it’s not finished. Whatever, just try to distort me moreIn this patterned world I sometimes lose sight of who I amI don’t want to be stereotyped. Don’t jump to conclusionsI will continue on a trackless pathIf I just stand around waiting nothing will happen(chAngE) I won’t yield and I won’t be swept awayI want to stay honest to how I feel nowI won’t docilely do what others want me to do(chAngE) No matter how many times I am rebornI will run while embracing my sadnessI can’t return to your side againIn my own way, I wanna chAngE!Why are you hesitating like that? Where did that endless hunger of yours go?I won’t fade away or rust away.
7: I’ll break free and play even louderWill the world notice how I have changed and reflect my current self?What is reflected in the future you wish for?I set off to a loveless tomorrowDon’t hold me back, even if you miss you. I want to move forward(chAngE) I won’t stop and I won’t look backI want to always chase after the truthI feel I can even grow fond of my tears(chAngE) I won’t forget and I won’t loseI will run while embracing my happinessEven if I am separated from your sideIn my own way, I wanna chAngE!If you are here after I have changedIf I am here after you have changed(chAngE)(chAngE)I’ll start running(chAngE) I won’t yield and I won’t be swept awayI want to stay honest to how I feel nowI won’t docilely do what others want me to do(chAngE) No matter how many times I am rebornI will run while embracing my sadnessIf we can look at the same sceneryI won’t ever return to your sideIn my own way, I wanna chAngE!
