    Okay, this this was a fun little thing I did a couple days ago. I don’t know if it’s technically a poem, more like a very free verse kind of things. Anyways, it’s funny, so I thought I’d put it up here for y’all to enjoy –

    “Riding the wind” sound fun,

    But wouldn’t it be rather dangerous?

    I mean, no seat belts, so…

    “Catch a falling star and put it in your pocket”

    Save up for a new pair of pants

    When the star has burned a hole through the cloth

    Hello, people, it’s a star!

    As in, flaming ball of gas?

    Can you not see the problem here?

    And while we’re on that subject…

    “Her beauty shone like the stars.”

    Yeah, okay, so she’s either

    A tiny white dot to your eyes

    Or burnt to a crisp in deep space

    Just saying…

    “Happily ever after”

    Why is that even a thing?

    I mean, who thought to put those three words together?

    Just weird…

    Yes, yes, call me whatever you want.

    Pessimist, spoil-sport.

    I don’t care.

    I’m a realist.

    Now would you please step aside?

    You’re in the way of my unicorn.


    I'm short, I like words, and I love people.
    No, I didn't draw my profile pic.


    @anne-of-lothlorien I definitely enjoyed it! Thanks for sharing. 🙂

    @Ann-of-Lothlorien THIS. This speaks to me on a deep and personal level. 😂😂 I’ll be honest, I have thought various cynical things of this ilk many, MANY times. Especially about “motivational” quotes.

    People say some really stupid things sometimes.

    @anne-of-lothlorien This is great. Lovely poem! XD

    When your wings are weak and you feel like you can't fly any farther you're halfway there!

    Haha! You made me laugh! Great poem. It was really clever, and I had fun with it (especially the unicorn twist at the end).

    Always remember you're unique...
    ...Just like everyone else
