White Picket Fence

I need the house,
With a white picket fence.
I don’t need siblings,
To tease and share memories with.
Or a father,
That shows his unconditional love.
My life could be quite far from perfect,
I’m willing to compromise my hopes and desires.
I just need the house,
With a white picket fence.

This is really good. I think I know how you feel - being able to settle with not the best, just because all it takes is that one thing to feel alright.

Take a look at some of my work too!

I love this poem, I can totally relate to the feel of, you know, just being done with people and having a place that's sanctuary..that's what I get from the poem at least. I'm sorry if I totally lissed what you're getting at.

I don't completely understand but I really like it all the same, the way the end ties with the beginning. It's a good short poem! Please check out some of my work if you can!
