O daddy I blame you not
For what you gave and what you can’t
But in my eyes the dreams desire
O some direction and some fire.

O daddy you are my favourite man
But I need more to rise and expand
In my thoughts I am a princess divine
That is the world where I rise and shine.

Rags I get and gowns I stitch
to protect my body, soul and dreams
I pick the pieces of shattered glass
To build a tiny palace for my class.

They tease me O daddy and call me names
And I crave for a lavish blissful life
I blame you not for what they say
But I must rise higher one day.

I stand here alone, firm and still
With high-self esteem and pride
To face my destiny, time and the world
To prove the strength of my words.

…O yes my daddy’s poor and I am his elegant daughter!

      • If you write one for kids of all ages about magic or fairies, I do occasionally reblog. Lots of poets follow my site, and you might get other people to visit you that way.

        That’s so kind of you Brenda. Honestly I didn’t know much about the site earlier and I really want yo reach out to people like fellow writers. Will definitely write one such piece and I truly appreciate your consideration! Thank you. 🙂

      • No pressure. Look over my site, and you will see the kind of thing I reblog. Just let me know about it by dropping by and giving me a link, my reader is so clogged I might miss it otherwise. Cheers, Brenda
