You will find as you look back upon your life that the moments when you have truly lived are the moments when you have done things in the spirit of love.
Henry Drummond


In a small town
on the edge of nowhere
lives a raven
the color of night
with a white spot
like the moon
on top of his head

He’s a bit lonesome
the cursed one
he’s known as

With his observant and perspective
eye,
He witnesses every happiness
every misery
of the townspeople
and it becomes his own
in a way

He is intelligent and wise
and carries with him
a sense of upliftment
that inspires others

With his talent of bringing people together
he united three girls
and now he has companions
who follow and adore him

And together they began their adventures
And start to see life in a new way

When i was little/I used to point a chubby finger toward the dark sky/And ask my father/why some stars moved and others didn’t/He would laugh and explain that some were airplanes/I still wish on them today ~ Laugh-It-Out
The feathers of a crow are black/The ink of my pen is blacker/The pain of my heart is blackest~ Mckay
If love produced a blossom/I’d take it in my palm/What a blessing, the bright color!/How soothing, such a balm!/I’d keep a petal for my own/The rest, drop from my hands/For such a flower would multiply/And populate the lands~ thesilentraven
And I began to rival legends/Long entombed before my birth./But for all my much envied fame/The lust for more would not abate./The plaques and prizes with my name/Will, like all things, disintegrate. ~ TheEpic95 now known as Helena_Noel

Gosh, I do sound insane! LOL.... Please don't mind.

  WOW, even though I don't know much about him or you yet; this truly made my eyes water..... Firstly the purpose: dedication...And secondly: the story. I'd definitely like to know it in full though, that is of course if you don't mind. Raven is very lucky to have such friends. Are you friends in real life or became friends on Teenink, and the second last part that says he united three girls...How?? Man, I'm so so curious about this whole story. I hope you don't think I'm too cheesy.   I wish I had Raven as a friend. He seems to be the most amazing person.

It was about the actual raven bird, before I wrote this poem I googled stuff about ravens. I wanted the poem to be authentic both to you and the actual raven bird. I'm so happy you enjoyed it! :) Really, I am. :) :) :) :) :)

What did you intend with the bit about being cursed? I loved the description, and it's kinda true, but what did you intend, I wonder? (If you don't mind telling me, of course!) Was it about 'me Raven' or the raven?

My dear Aderes, he does love it! Oh how he does!

You seriously don't know how much this means to me, and how delighted I was to receive such a poetic gift. You seem to have reached, whether you knew it or not, quite a lot of truth during the first half of the poem. The second half then, made me smile a wide smile, and happiness perched quite happily on top of my head. :) Thanks so so so so so much! You're a wonderful poet and friend.

Thanks! This poem was inspired by a combination of raven's personalty and a raven's characteristics.

It is better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all.

Nice!  I'm sure Raven will love your tribute!.  I still need to write him one, but I've been so busy I haven't had the time.  For the first time in months I don't have work waiting to be posted!  But it's good, I love it!
