nankurunaisa one word, a clutch to hope, to wish, to tell to not worry too much everything’s gonna be good everything’s gonna end well
Nankurunaisa, an ancient Japanese (Okinawan) saying. The original meaning was: "Never forget where you are and live for today and for tomorrow; never forget to smile and, however bad your day has been, remember that the next day the sun will receive you with a big smile, so do the same yourself".
Wondering where the streets Walk through the night Lost on a freeway I hope the journey is right I think this must be a lane along a sign Hidden by the starlight and rain Volleying my car through the road I can't sleep with being uncertain The cold moon is lost in translation That shade of paleness touches me too As I wander under the stellar sky Three times, I text you,"I don't know.' There won't be a fourth one Since, your heart is printed in my heart Like today being the backdrop for tomorrow's anticipation My feet hardly leave your doorstep My mind turns and turrets Lost in translation I wonder what splits the night Into dreams and nightmares Is it being lost in translation? ...love is a daydream I sleep on
Midway- Surprise! We saw them Coming from a mile away. Japanese aircrafts and ships try and attack, And they get their butts whooped! And then we got the idea to island hop!
Hop to Iwo Jima- Slowly.... Slowly.... Don't scare it, It's like a nest of bees! And we got it! Two air bases captured And one step closer to the mainland! Japan may be fortified, but we Have tons of muscle!
Hop to Okinawa- this one was a doozy... The biggest amphibious battle of WWII, And contained the most casualties! Pretty harsh. Maybe you they shouldn't have attacked us in the firs place! We only meant to invade and use the island as a Springboard towards the mainland, but the Battle took too long. Just weeks after the fighting ended, Japan surrendered And we bombed Hiroshima and Nagasaki! We never got to invade...
I had a bit of fun with this one. The entire poem is read in either a kids voice or a sassy, streriotypical teenagers' voice.
