Halle

For those of you who don’t know who Halle is, let me tell you. She is our 13-year-old daughter and the first publicly published author in our house.

She is also a character in all three of the Lakeview Novels I have written or am in the process of writing.

She wrote this poem last week for extra credit and I thought it well worth a blog post.

 

 

Possibilities

Can you tame

That which is not yours

 

Can you gain

Without lifting a finger

 

Can you control

That which has held you captive

 

I ask the impossible

Yet widely know

 

What many people look at

Yet have never seen

Never sensed

 

You say I’m crazy

A strange sheet of nothing

Unable to be heard

Left by society

 

But I am something more

 

A flair

Sparkling bright

Inspiring a million

Strengthening even the free spirit’s mind

 

I can taste

That cloud of realism

That follows your every move

Shielding your eyes

From the love that blinds others
