Favorite Quote:
I am too positive to be doubtful. Too optimistic to be fearful. And too determined to be defeated.

Where have you gone
video rental stores?
I miss you greatly,
please don't leave me.

Oh video rental stores,
do you know how great you are?
I love to walk inside
and spend hours among your shelves.

You offer me every genre:
comedy, horror, romance, even foreign.
I know I'll never run out of options
though I visit you so often.

You don't judge me or my choices
no matter the cheaply made production.
And when I'm done choosing,
you're so kind to shower me in popcorn and candies.

Oh video rental stores,
don't listen to all those instant downloadables.
You are perfect just the way you are,
so don't give up just yet.

The author's comments:
I wrote this ode as a fun piece, contrary to my often serious poetry. I hate to see that all the video rental stores are closing, so I wrote about it.
