A Step Into The Real World

A Step Into The Real World short poem

Photo by martinak15

A step into the real world
Putting her first foot forward she hesitates,
Though exploring the realms of the unknown excite her,
Enthuse her to find her own niche; find for her a new domain,
Nostalgia holds her back.

Faraway in the sands of time are etched little footsteps
Accompanied by a little shadow
An infantile thrill grips her as the waves splash over her feet.
The sparkling laughter fills her mind as the memories wash over.
When in stories princesses triumphed over evil witches, her little eyes twinkled and slipping her tiny hand in her dad’s she learned how to never let go.
At times, the young girl struggled and stumbled her way through the darkness reaching out for a new morn.
Along the way, a wisp of brush here and a stroke there she added diverse pastels to her life’s canvas.
Suddenly a resplendent butterfly circled around, beckoning her to sprinkle her hues in the world.
Take a step into the real world.

Nasty World

Nasty World ballad

The innocent and lovely creatures are crying, crying bitterly every moment, For their beauty is their curse; One can not listen to the cry, As it is disgracefully buried by the devils in the inaccessible depth of the secret world,

In this life, sometimes we face, Steps we have to take, that brings disgrace. Those around you, will point and judge, But if those steps for you, are good, I say, do not budge. For what steps we take, that
