Miranda Van Yperen

(August 20,1996)

This Is the Real Me


I was a girl
Lost in her fantasy

But I'm back now
And this is the real me

I eat candy, play sports,
Watch TV

Like other kids
This is the real me

I smell the flowers
And run from a bee

I follow butterflies
This is the real me

I love to explore
I can hang from a tree

But even if I get lost again
You will always know, this is the real me

poet Ambrose Bierce

Weather
by Ambrose Bierce

Once I dipt into the future far as human eye could see,
And I saw the Chief Forecaster, dead as any one can be--
Dead and damned and shut in Hades as a liar from his birth,
