Half Rhymes

Like the picture you show Miss Card
Who says, That isn’t too bad

Or the present you give Aunt Flower
Who says, That isn’t my colour

Or when your best friend is playing catch
And she says, If you like, you can watch

Or the day that you thought wouldn’t come
And you walk to school on your own

Brings back some sad childhood memories. An excellent poem!

It's like....nothing you can do goes right......

Too young to understand,
you try so hard but everything is just.....wrong.

It's not fun being a child sometimes :)

That's odd, Transience. It's only a regular Blogger blog. Here's the address if that helps.

then there was the time my Dad gave me a pepper, telling me it was a pickle! Betrayal, in my eyes!
Your few carefully chosen words have opened up the proverbial can.

I especially love the title of this poem. Sad but beautifully written.
