A Mirage of Hope



Every morning, with the aid of his walker,

the old man took his morning stroll.

To him, morning strolls meant more than

just a routine, they were his elixir. 

Around the same time every morning

a stranger passed by him.

But, instead of the old man seeing the jogger,

the shadow became his mirage of hope.

Purple Heels


Purple heels

There once was a lady wearing Purple heels.

She loved wearing her Purple heels with the spiked frills.

She did not care if wearing the Purple heels made her fall.

She wore the heels because they made her feel tall.

She really loved how the Purple heels made her feel.

She loved wearing those Purple heels for thrills.
