Happiness is like a butterfly
The more you chase it
The more it will elude you
But if you turn your attention to other things
It will come and sit softly on your shoulder. - Henry David Thoreau

A little lovely Martian lands

on a lonely planet.

Woe is

her, wandering aimlessly,

she’s always wondering as she

walks by wonders,

"Will I ever find another Martian to marvel at?"

Keeping her head high,

she hides

her harried mind by

only looking forward.

She scans the skies and surveys the scenes,

wishing wistfully

for just one Martian so she can

stop waiting.

Ignoring everything else,

she frantically searches her surroundings

only to find


Little did she know, all the Martians

were under her nose.

Oh, how embarrassing. I was inspired by a girl that I've met in my freshman year of high school (this year, aha). I had a small crush on her.
