Miranda Van Yperen

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

Poem of the Day

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Where sunless rivers weep
Their waves into the deep,
She sleeps a charmed sleep:
Awake her not.
Led by a single star,
She came from very far
