It’s World Poetry Day. Enjoy!
Self portrait by S. Lindau
The girl on the page was sullen.
She had so much to give
And so much to do.
She followed the whims of the author,
Who took her to task,
Forced her to go through,
The fantasies that surrounded
The world in her head;
The dreams that she knew.
But the girl planned a way to confound her.
She imbedded a thought
That created the truth.
She broke through the chains that confined her.
No longer was held
As the author’s keys fell.
So she took control of the author
And told her that she
Would rather be free.
To live her life out in the open
Where she could be heard.
For those understood
That her life could be what she wanted.
To live life and love
All those she thought of.
Her heart felt the first beat of living
She opened her mind

What a creative way to see the author! Thank you for sharing this!
Wow! This was such a great piece on how the character turns things around. Creative, telling it from her point of view. “She took control of the author …” Nicely done. Continuing to send you hugs, love, strength, and light.
Loved your poem Susie! 🙂
