Poem: No Ordinary Day

I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.

Poem Summary

No ordinary day is a poem expressing the way a man tries to convince her holidays are only a way for companies to make money. But history has plagued us with these special days. A woman wants to feel like she has found her prince charming. Make her feel special, especially on Valentine's Day.

No Ordinary Day

It is just another day
a celebration for companies
to make money,
she heard him say.

As if to make her
change her heart,
to believe his way.

Companies may endorse certain moments
to play upon our hearts,
to take advantage of us,
but lest we remember
they are not responsible.

History plagued us with holidays,
symbols from the past,
those childhood memories like Cinderella
who made us believe in true love.

Every little girl grows up dreaming
to find her Romeo,
holding it deep within her heart.

As a woman, she wants
her once-in-a-lifetime prince
to take her away,
for just a moment or two
from the reality
which is her life.

No perfection is necessary,
show her your love,
display your feelings
in a way
no one else can,
because for her
this is no ordinary day.
