"Everything will be okay in the end. If it's not okay, it's not the end"- I'm not sure, so I'm going to say anonymous.


The cold wind ravages the world outside,
Rain and hail with my house collide.
But luckily, I am inside.

A gold and red dragon warms the room,
And I think about a scrumptious dinner soon.
Roast chicken and potatoes and veggies galore,
A book and a blanket; how could I want more?

But when I looked at the window and to the world outside,
My dear, I tell you, I almost cried!
When I think of all that I possess,
I have to remember that many have less.

So when your day takes a turn for the worst,
Remember, my dear, that another’s is always worse.

My English teacher asked us to write a short poem to practice the suitable uses of similes and metaphors. I wrote this in ten minutes. What do you guys think? :)
