The Fairy Tales MAG

By Chelsi Alexander, Oak Grove, MO

Make believe the fairy tales
They are locked inside your head
Make believe that you’re okay
Or make believe you’re dead
Go throughout your day
Think what you want to think
Notice things
Notice life
Even if you are behind yourself
Hide in the mask
Hide in the dark
Hide yourself with smiles
Until you get by yourself
Release the scared child
Your true self
No more lies
You know who you are
So come out
Please don’t hide
You can do it

I like the flow of this piece. The end "You can do it", it would probably be best if you left that part out. It sounds so much better without it. It's a great piece though, but its just a suggestion.

I think it could be better, but other than that I like it.

Your a good writer, this has a lot of feeling. If its how you feel and from your heart, i hope you feel better :: and if its from your head, your very creative. --BRAVO! either way.

This is really good. It speaks to the way I've been feeling lately. And I think it helped. :)
