A Part of Me

This is a place to publish all my poetry that I've written since junior high school. The ones I wrote first will post first and you probably will be able to tell a teenager wrote them. HA. But as they progress I hope they became more insightful and even inspired. Some have definite themes to the writing style, flow, or continuity that I hope people will catch onto.

Stuffed Animals

They’re all so cute and cuddly,
I always want them around.
Some can mean more to me
Than any friend I’ve found.

Whether it’s a puppy dog
Or a little bunny rabbit.
I have to have lots of them,
Some call it a bad habit.

The “Teddy Bear” is the most famous,
Though I haven’t got one yet.
My birthday is coming up,
I’ll get one then I bet.

They come in different shapes and sizes.
The big ones are my favorite.
The little ones are okay.
I’ve got places for them to sit.

The color doesn’t matter much.
I’m sure most of them are adorable.
If I ever found one I hated,
It would have to be really horrible.

I wish that I could show you
All the fuzzy friends I’ve got.
But I think I’d rather wait
‘til I get a lot more bought.

My stuffed animals are like a secret family to me.
Although other may like them,
There’s something about them they don’t see.

Well, maybe I’ve told you enough
About one of my great interests.
Guess you can tell by now,
Collecting stuffed animals is something I do best.
