Tell Me A Story

August 23, 2012

Tell me a story where good things happen
Tell me a story about life
Tell me a story where there is no evil
Tell me a story about a land that doesn’t exist

Tell me a story about your past
Tell me a story about Grandpa
Tell me a story about you as a kid
Tell me, I’m trying to learn

Tell me a story about when your dog died
Tell me a story about death
Tell me a story about how life goes on
Tell me a story about sadness

Tell me a story about the soldiers who fight
Tell me a story of bravery
Tell me a story about guns and wounds
Tell me a story of war

Tell me a story about dreaming
Tell me a story about things you see
Tell me a story where the stars dance with the moon
Tell me a story about night

Tell me a story about what I’ll do when I’m older
Tell me your thoughts about me
Tell me a story where I’m ridiculously famous
Tell me a story about me

I guess it's true when they say inspiration comes at the oddest times. Enjoy!

Everybody wants to go to heaven, but nobody wants to die. How is that?

Great poem!  The repetition looked good.  Where did you get the idea though.

What was the inspriation for this?  It's good, though a bit repetive, but that's probably the point.  :D

The repetition is very nice, but does not stray into annoying-be careful with that, haha. But very well written, I liked it. Keep writing.

This was a great poem, I loved how you used the repetition of the phrase 'tell me a story' and the poem flowed very nicely.  Great job and keep writing!
