What do you think of the poem written (loosely translated) by a boy who is said not well behaved at school? Don ´t we sometimes judge others just by their appearance and actions without really knowing them?
Life Is Change!
He used to be such a vandal
Each day he made a scandal
There was only noise left behind
Daily evil was his friend
His way of life almost brought his parents out of mind
And suddenly –
He stopped spraying walls,
Breaking windows by the stones,
He didn’t steal money from his mom,
No troubles to his girlfriend any more
Why is it so quiet around here?
Did he finally leave the town?
Somebody mowed the lawn,
Neighbors were given strudel
A friend´s bike was fixed again
And that one bought a flower for his date
Indeed, it was that vandal,
Involved in every scandal
He said: I want to change
Let people stop frowning at me
Somebody else mows the lawn,
And the vandal is a famous counselor
Those who say people never change
Still know little about life essence
