Do You?Do you really know why an adult girl would be carrying a plush around with her every now and again?
You sit, laugh, point fingers at her, even take pictures. For what? You think it is funny that an adult is childish enough to carry and hug a plush.
But why? Do you really know? You assume that she is only a child, and laugh right at her face because of it.
Maybe something has been lost, and that is the last memory that there is from it.
Maybe someone left her and never returned, and she clutches onto it in their place.
Or maybe, someone of great importance is gone, and the 'if' in 'if they will be back' is much too frightening to bear.
Maybe she's only acting strong, and the toy is something to hold onto in lack of another.
Maybe she's forgotten what it's like to have a shoulder to cry on, and looks to a child's means of comfort.
Before you assume, think what might be the reasons.
Maybe it's because people like you.
Laughing at her pain.
You're Not A PoetYou’re not a poet because of strung words
Together on row upon row again
Of blank verse or perhaps liberal rhyme.
‘Slam’ all you want, other poets wonder;
Your ignorance of couplets a blunder?
Yes! I speak harshly, but it’s no gross crime,
To point with honesty failed verse of thine.
No real poet discards upper case words;
Lets prose crawl on paper like listless worms.
You seek to free verse of those stern letters,
Sever away bleak capital fetters,
But it doesn’t sing of great speech sublime,
Rather, it sneaks of writing in spare time.
Wait! before you throw me in the icy Rhine;
It’s hard to put verse together in rhyme,
To make our dull words sound great all the time,
Hear them ring out loud, like a clear clock’s chime,
Heralding a poet’s summer prime.
Yet the sacred muses weep at your crime;
Your pentameter mangled thick like slime,
The subject not gilded in raiment fine;
Your bold ink font, crystal waters divine
Tastes bitter to the ton
Keep in Touch!
