A Big Story

Poem By Sofia Moreno

Life is a big story
And every good story
Has others deep within
The secret lies in knowing
The ways each starts
And who ends them.

Now that the storytelling time begins
The kids gather around
Expecting in their innocence
The special moment, the climax!
When is the prince kissing her?
When is he going to save her?

The beautiful princess lies still in
Eternal slumber and pain…
Will she be saved?

But this is my story and no such things happen
They look at me, disdained
For them, the magic fades away
And,
However, hidden somewhere,
The characters still live
New stories are told, and
Characters come and go.

But someone needs saving
And someone is asleep
Someone is in pain
And no magic is left.

Change The World

I wonder why I get so sad
I just can't understand
It's not the end of the world
Just transitory pain of my world

Blessing Or Curse?

Oh dear me! Oh dear me!
The stars are becoming dark!
The night is turning red!
The sadness that hunts my heart

Prison

I look around me,
People talk and laugh,
they are unaware...
But still I remember,

You Taught Me-

You taught me how to laugh,
You taught me how to cry,
You taught me how to shout,
Don't want to be like that.

Do You?

Your words hurt my heart
Your touch burns my skin
Don’t you get you’re not of my kin?
Don’t you get you’ve got no part?

Black, White And Me

Black and white…Don’t say a word,
Little stars shine down there…
From up here, so little…
Ants rush and rush… Run!
