The water girl

I’m freshly covered in water, from head to my toes

Cool luscious water, where the sea flows

Stones gather around me, little pebbles too

I do not have the need to wear pretty diamante shoes

I swim all day prancing through the beautiful blue waves

To eat a crab or mussels is what this girl craves

Rock pooling in the shallow waters is everything I need

To keep me very happy and broadly journeyed

I rarely enter shallow waters, and rarer still the land

 For if I were ever seen I’ll be a made a spectacle of man

pecking away at small morsels

When did your mind get so narrow?

We can’t all be thin like sparrows

Pecking away at small morsels

Living a life like that would be awful

Enjoy your food, enjoy your life

Do not add unneeded strife

Broaden your mind and let go of fears

Then you’ll enjoy happier years

About poems…

In the last couple of days I’ve thought of great beginnings for more poems but I am finding it hard to make a complete poem out of them.  One to two sentences and I stop, so this made me wonder, is there such a thing as one line poems?  If so, how can I tell if I am unique in what I say or whether or not I am plagiarizing?

Also I haven’t read much poetry in my life, I don’t know much about it.  Is poetry still poetry if it doesn’t rhyme?  If so, how does that work?

Comment please…

Damaged, my mind is

Remembering times of violence, a lot

Angry at my past for damaging my future – not

Suicidal and wishing I had another life?  Not anymore

Trichotillomania making your hair pull – sure

Irritated by yourself?  No I’m secure

Changed by your past?  Aren’t we all?
