A poem broken into two parts. The first, in the third person, telling a tale of a young girl who writes stories. The second, in the first person, telling how and why she writes her stories.

Once Upon a TIme-Part I

There once was a young girl,

Who loved to jump and twirl.

Her smile bright and gay,

Always laughing along her way.

But the world is cruel and harsh,

All the inspiration of a marsh.

To escape this dreary world,

She wrote her stories bold.

Her dreams are grand and vibrant,

Refusing to be silent.

And so she writes for all to hear,

Refusing to just disappear.

Listen to the words she speaks,

And the tears will stain your cheeks.

For stories speak when life refuses,

You’ll hear the song of her muses.

Grand they're not, but true they stand,

Their life a lighthouse on the land.

Tales of danger, love and pain,

Find your prince and love again.

This is soo amazing!! While I was reading it I pictured it being said in a British accent. The last part, where it says "again" at the end it rhymes with the sentence above it if you say it in a British accent so that's where I got the idea from haha :)
This is super duper good! - Jamile
