A note to my followers – sorry about the confusion of the half written post, I do hope you enjoy my latest poetry 🙂!
I remember long ago,
I was terribly lonely, though,
after you bought me off the shelf,
I soon became a happier self.
My journey began at a factory,
where I could never possibly be lonely,
as I saw multiple versions of me,
stocked as far as the eye could see.
But then I was shipped to another place,
a store selling toys and dresses with lace,
And even though the shop was great,
I felt that for me, it was far too late.
Unless I saw a girl or boy,
interested in me – a simple toy,
I would’ve stayed on that shelf till the end of time,
my companions being dirt, dust and grime.
And so I must show my gratitude,
and now, of course, to conclude,
I hope that once you’re done with me,
when I’m much too childish and slightly dusty,
Perhaps another child would benefit too,
If I gave him what I gave you,
Pass me along and I swear I will give,
As much happiness to that child – as long as I live.
