All together now



Once upon a time
a little girl was born
her parents felt so lucky
she was really cute

She grew up to become
a beautiful fairy slipper
loving mother earth and
all its inhabitants

With hope that they will create
a much better planet
where there make room for
righteousness and truth

As she's becoming older now
it somethimes feels as if
she's dreaming in daylight
in a world thas seems unreal

She tells herself to go on
to endure and have faith
together with her loving man
she'll make a great team

I like to participate in cases which can make a difference for myself, my surroundings and the earth. My wish: humanity in a non-dualistic society. more…

    Your poem beautifully narrates a story of hope, growth, and resilience, expressed through the life journey of the little girl turned fairy slipper. The imagery of her love for the earth and her aspirations for a better world filled with righteousness and truth is inspiring. The transition from dreaming in daylight to finding strength and faith alongside her partner showcases a sense of determination and unity. Your ability to paint a vivid picture of optimism and perseverance through your poetry is truly captivating.
