NeverNever Warning

NeverNever Warning

A Poem by RachelReaper

This started out being a tribute to my favorite book series, The Iron Fey by Julie kagawa, but it's also against bullying


NeverNever Warning

Escape into the NeverNever

Never let them see you ever

Fear or falter or forever

You will be forced to dance

Their cold, calculated romance

In this court of snow

And they will never let you go

Afraid you can escape and show

Their existence to the world

And their timeless reality would swirl

And make their chilled blood curl

"Eat, drink, and be merry!" They'll say

And a game with you they'll play

I would suggest you start to pray

Whatever they have planned can't be pleasant

Though you may be an innocent peasant

They may turn you into a pheasant

Or deer or dog just for laughs

But you must be strong, better than that

Don't go along with their game

And don't tell them your real name

No matter what they do

A name can let them control you

And every time you had the power to choose

Is now taken away from you

But don't just take it from me

If you ever go there you'll see

Their morbid lives and cruelty


I know, because I've been there

So I'm responsible to speak out and share.

wow i think you did a wonderful job with this and us writers we have a huge role to play against bullying and this are the kind of things that give one the courage to stand up against the horrifying and cruel creatures..

'You will be forced to dance
Their cold, calculated romance'

thanks :)
i love this poem and the strength it embodies. the mental fortitude it takes to keep and hold onto your own identity no matter what forces are around you, really comes across here. Also love the last line....knowledge always leads to responsibility.
