Tell me a story
of where the sun shines happily
the small birds sing songs sweetly
the flowers clear the air of stench
and fairies hide before they cause trouble

Tell me a story
of where mermaids sing like angels
the fish fear ferocious sharks
the pirates sail the open waters
and where there is danger at every turn

Tell me a story
of where a blood thirsty dragon
is holding a fair maiden captive
that causes a duel between the dragon
and the heroic brave handsome knight

Tell me a story
of a little girl who lives in a cruel world
Full of drugs, fights, and abuse
tell the story so you can assure me
that I too will have a happily ever after

"Be the change you want to see."

I love this! You speak honestly and from your heart, and your sadness bleeds throughout the poem. I like how in the first stanza the facts are fictions, and they get truer and truer and the stanzas go on. And in the last stanza, the facts are sad, but true.

Good job!

Please read, rate, and comment on my poems! Thanks!

I have read most of your poems. They're really good! :) I like Hourglass. The description is amazing! It reminded me strongly of a poem I wrote called Actions in Life. Could you have a look at it? Thanks! 5 stars from me! :D
