Poem: Her Magic Spirit

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

"Her Magic Spirit"

She is tired of watching
her dreams fade away,
one by one
doors slamming in her face.

Her heart aches in pain
but her spirit refuses to give up,
reshuffling the deck
playing a new hand.

When she is fast asleep
this ghostly energy douses the flames,
sprinkling magic on her broken dreams
keeping her passion alive.

"The Impossible Dream" by Susan Boyle

Ruby,

That is a great Motto.

I remember when Susan Boyle first sang for The British Got Talent show...she definitely proved dreams can come true.

Thank you.

Very short, but hard-hitting. Currently struggling with my own passions and could use some magic being sprinkled on me, hahaha!
