Sincere Shakespeare

Feelings of love,

A balcony high above,

Houses that dignify

And defy gravity

Practicing honest sincerity

Life lessons

Beyond compare

With the freshness

Of breathing air

A globe and a rose

Doing much more

Than anyone knows,

And that is how

The story goes,

So live in a way

To make the most of today

While respecting

An accomplished playwright

Without ever being afraid

Of doing anything right
