Poem Entitled History of Fate
According to my scribbles, this means: Even though dreams don't always come true, you should keep them in memory.
According to my scribbles, this means: Know what is on the inside of a person before you judge the outside. Things aren't always what they seem.
According to my scribbles: You should use the loving memories you have to conquer bad days.
According to my scribbles: Fill your heart with some kind of love before you use your heart for just sorrow.
No scribbles went with this one. It's pretty much self-explanatory.
