Dear Santa

It’s a little early, I know

But letters do travel a little slow

And I wanted to make sure you received this on time

So I’m also trying to make this interesting by doing a rhyme.

I appreciate you giving gifts to kids all over the world

And doing it all in one night is quite bold

But for this year, could you please include

Not just the young but also the old.

Not toys, necessarily

As they only bring joy momentarily.

If you could please hug those whose hearts have been broken

Those who thought no opportunity for them would be open.

Hug the one’s who lost someone

To help remove the frown

And save the milk and the cookie

To those who are in poverty.

Spread your ‘Ho, Ho, Ho’ and merriment

To those who has lost hope, be their testament.

Thank you, Santa for helping out

I know you’re going to do great, without a doubt.

Love Letter

I found a letter addressed to me

I read it slowly and carefully

It said,

“Hey beautiful! Remember you are beautiful…

In every single way

No matter what you feel each day.

Do not let the scale’s number or the clothing size define you.

You are wonderful and beautiful despite what some other people might say…

Despite what you might say to yourself.

You’re not perfect but you are unique so stop trying to fit in.

Be you

Be bold yet simple

Be delicate but strong

Be your awesome you!

There will be people who will put you down.

Society will try to change you to fit the norm.

But remember, you are loved and should learn to love yourself.

Most of all, remember that I love you.”

The letter ended and it was signed by me.

Not All Girls

Not all girls have curvy body

Not all girls are tall

Not all girls are sexy slim

Most girls don’t have it all.

.

Not all girls are unruly but also

Not all girls are prim and proper

Not all girls like frilly things

Not all girls are makeup lovers.

.

Not all girls receive equal opportunity

Not all girls have their voices heard

But some girls are rising up now

And will not be deterred.

Peace In Me

When I finally let you go

I found peace of mind.

I found a peace within me where once there were numerous questions.

My tears have found peace

And most tears I cry now are for joy.

Where I used to have a knot for fear of not being with you,

I am now able to breathe easily.

I found peace the moment I let you go.

When I realised you were the chaos

I was able to appreciate the silence.

I am now at peace with myself

And you are now just a lesson on an old page in my book.

Uphill

The mountain before me is incredibly steep

I have to work hard and dig deep.

My climb is slow, my breathing heavy

Stopping myself a couple of times to keep myself steady.

One step at a time, one foot in front of the other

I’ll get to the top, one way or another.

So I go on, upwards and onwards!

Gates

Open the gates and you’ll see me waiting

I’m just here.

Too long you’ve kept yourself away

Too long you’ve locked yourself in

Too long you’ve doubted yourself.

It’s time to open up and let yourself free

Open the gates and take my hand.
