I Am Serious

Jeffrey Chen

I am serious.
I wonder if you are formal too.
I hear myself groaning about other people being too immature;
I see myself being polite and formal;
I wish other people would be more serious about learning.
I am serious.

I pretend to be in space,
I feel like an object floating in space.
I touch my pet turtle when I lift him into the air when I pretend he’s in space;
I worry that affordable space tourism will not happen in the near future;
I cry when a space exploration fails and people die.
I am serious.

I understand humans always want power;
I say don’t become corrupt and abuse it.
I dream of a modern, civilized, and stable society.
I hope conflicts in the future will be fought for the better of everyone.
I am serious.

Together we are all human;
Together we will improve this world for society;
Together we will make this world educational;
Together we are human and I am the disinfector.
