Maybe

Wheeeee…. we are at the half-way point of the 2015 A to Z Challenge! 😀  For all participating bloggers, give yourself a pat on the back for a job well done. 🙂

For my 13th post for the  Blogging A to Z Challenge, I wrote a poem entitled MAYBE.

M is for MAYBE

Maybe

Maybe if we looked a certain way
People would take notice
So life would be less grey
It’ll just take a bit of practise

Maybe if we spoke in a trendy way
We would be more popular
That would make our day
Not as hard as pulling a molar

Maybe if we mixed with a certain crowd
Instantly, gain more respect
Enough to make us proud
Wouldn’t life be just perfect?

Maybe if we splurged on expensive things
To draw attention to our uppity tastes
Mustn’t forget the bling
It wouldn’t be merely a waste

Maybe if we joined a cliché or two
Dress and look just like them
And ape what they do
Feel like we can be sparkly gems

What if you max out your cards
Gold, diamond and platinum
Would they help clean up the shards
From your life gone wrong; or just play dumb?

Maybe you should try to be you
There’s nobody quite like you
Special, unique, custom-made
Your shining star will never fade
