Look Beyond

By: Rana Khatib (

Check out some student poetry!

Look Beyond

Defeat the villain trying to bring you down

Most love to smile while you frown
Look Beyond

Disregard the planned, clever lies
And inhale the beauty before your eyes
Look Beyond

Continue that difficult climb
Be sure not to waste precious time
Look Beyond

That reflection you see so clearly in the water
Portrays that strength they attempt to slaughter
Look Beyond

Life wraps its opportunity and sends it as a gift
So unwrap the anticipation and allow it to sift
Look Beyond

Seize greatness and shake its hand
Never fear the new because the rest is bland
Look Beyond

Dare to become those independent, bare trees
That aren’t afraid of growing new leaves
Look Beyond

You’re part of this wild life
So remember to accept its strife
Look Beyond
