In honor of Pokemon's 10th birthday...
"Maybe We Really Do"
For many of us, it started with a game
Some sided with the mighty turtle of blue, others with the firey red dragon
Whichever side we chose, our task was the same:
Gotta catch'em all!
The adventure began in the Land of the Rising Sun,
It crossed the pond to the land of the free,
Wherever these mystical creatures did travel,
They captured the hearts of millions, just like you and me.
We faithfully watched the adventures
Of Ash and his friends
As he traveled to prove himself worthy
Some of us strived to be like him,
Wanted to be the very best
But some weren't so swayed by this craze,
Some even dared to call it wicked and dark
But despite all the screaming, we kept on training,
This simple little game had made its mark
Now millions of trainers exist today,
Pokemon has become famous far and wide,
No matter our age, language or creed
We are all a part of a Pokemon world....
Now the tenth year is here, and the catching goes on,
Everyone plays Pokemon with pride!
Yet I think to myself as I train my own team,
Maybe we really do live in a Pokemon world!
