balancing girl.

I don’t want to ask
Or maybe
I ask too much
Like those times
I tell you
I wish you could
Read my mind
So I never
Have to ask again
For anything
But that is crazy
I just want
To be saved
And maybe
I should be asking
A higher power
But to me
That is you
Or maybe


This poem was inspired by the following quote (yes, really!):
Homer Simpson: I’m normally not a praying man, but if you’re up there, please save me Superman.



About what sandra thinks

Sandra began writing when she was a sixth grader. She is a teller of stories through poetry, fiction, and tales from her own life. And she thinks too much. Read, think, enjoy, laugh.

    Maybe that picture will inspire a poem called “a balanced life”? Take the face outline on the left, add that in, and there’s a whole lot more to inspire!

    How did she get there?
    No-body knows.
    Has anyone missed her?
    Only the crows!

    Haha. I love that Homer Simpson inspired you. My Grandpa’s middle name was Homer, he hated it, especially when the Simpsons came out!
