The Myth

Who says they don’t exist?

Horned and glowing in a clearing,

lapping calmly at the passing waters of life.

I would search every forest in England if I thought it would help.

But before I trek and struggle and rithe

around a physical thicket of resisting matter…

I will first take up seeking the more fantastical, the less attested.

I will search for the lost unicorn in me.

The things in me that people think don’t exist.

My greatness will not be a myth. My worth will not be a legend.

Everyone knows a unicorn cannot live if it is not loved. Believe in the unicorns within you, before they die of a broken heart.

Greatness cannot become itself unless there are great believers.

My Greatness will not be a myth.

believe in the unicorns within you.

Tell Me Of My Beauty

Tell me of my beauty,

My limbs and my lines

Tell me I’m capable

And that I’m divine.

Build me a bubble

Of soap suds and dreams

Graft me a tower,

And see how it gleams.

I know its not bricks

And built all on sand

But my house of sticks

Is all in demand-

And I don’t believe

In that wolf

That blows down desire

I don’t believe in misfortune

Or sandstorms or fire.

I believe that I’m perfect.

-provided you tell me I’m so

So say again of my beauty

And restore my glow.
