Punctuation

If I could be any mark of punctuation…
I would like to be a comma,
To me, periods are too abrupt.
And exclamation marks are too flashy!!!!
Semi-colons are too technical;
And dashes are too – drawn – out –
But a comma is nice,
It’s a brief pause,
A chance to rest in between ideas,
And that is how I think I would like my life described,

Part of what is at risk is the promise first made on this continent…  This promise means that all children by virtue of their own efforts, competently guided, can hope to attain the mature and informed judgment needed to secure gainful employment and manage their own lives thereby serving not only their own interests but also the progress of society itself.
