Ruling as queen in
A post-apocalyptic
World. Bow before me.

Oye, I'm sorry I haven't replied 'till now. Maybe I did by writing you a comment on one of your things but I'm not sure, so I feel rude! Thank you, thank you thank you. You make my face do this ^_^ with your praise. I got a job at my cousin's haunted furniture store and that was my favorite job ever until I moved out of town! Now I work at a dry cleaners.

I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.
- Maya Angelou
When i was little/I used to point a chubby finger toward the dark sky/And ask my father/why some stars moved and others didn’t/He would laugh and explain that some were airplanes/I still wish on them today ~ Laugh-It-Out
The feathers of a crow are black/The ink of my pen is blacker/The pain of my heart is blackest~ Mckay
If love produced a blossom/I’d take it in my palm/What a blessing, the bright color!/How soothing, such a balm!/I’d keep a petal for my own/The rest, drop from my hands/For such a flower would multiply/And populate the lands~ thesilentraven
And I began to rival legends/Long entombed before my birth./But for all my much envied fame/The lust for more would not abate./The plaques and prizes with my name/Will, like all things, disintegrate. ~ TheEpic95 now known as Helena_Noel

Firstly MANY Congratulations on being Published! Secondly I absolutely am stunned as to how powerful this piece of poetry is. ABSOLUTELY STUNNED. P.s. Good luck with the interviews!

Haha, thank you! I did not. It was at a nursing home an hour and a half away from my home and they were reluctant to hire me because they probably wouldn't be able to make it worth the gas.
