"Sing like no one's listening, Dance like no ones watching, Love like you've never been hurt."-Unknown

Clasping in my hand with much delight,
to  the sight of my invite.
Dressed in variations of white,
with accents of blue light.

Arriving to the festival grand,
I was set to where the castle doors stand.

I joined in the celebration of peace demand,

of the ruler of this land. 

Until the King's hand outstretched in awful fright,
I couldn't fathom the cause of the unseen sight.

Hope I carried here so bright,
taken by disappointment's bite.
Excusing myself against my will,
for I feared he was ill. 

The author's comments:

I wrote this based of an assignment in English, that we were to write journal entries of reactions to a mad king taking place of once good and great king.

I read over the journal entry and made this poem. Hope you enjoy, along with the amazing photo. That makes all my peices so much better.

I have not failed, I just found 10,000 ways to not succeed.

All that we see or seem is but a dream within a dream.

Very enjoyable, especially with the rhymes.
