haikus #1 #2 #3

by butterflyzrfree

#1
littlest ballerina
arms above head, plies,
slumping teenager

#2
all those hopes and dreams
dancer, teacher, doctor,
flush the toilet·

#3
something about a daughter
who smokes, spits like a man,
destroys a person.

are dreams called such, cause they never realize? is hope always born to die an early death?
sadly..sad!!

there is still time. not all ballerinas get up on their toes the first time....some of them fall - a fall from grace.

even dreams that seem like thay are going to die can do a turn around and come true. I like this because it is so close to the truth of many children.
