BRAT

BRAT

A Poem by MisterG

Running blindly towards the sea

From the world she seemed to want to flee

In the darkest time of the gloam

A girl was running away from home

And pray why would she, you ask

The truth of it now, I’m going to unmask

So it began on a merry Christmas day,

All was cheerful, jolly and gay

Except Ann, she didn’t get the doll she wanted

Her gift was a book on a house so haunted

Her rage was risen, her face so red

A tantrum was thrown, she was sent off to bed

Lying there sullen, she plotted to run

Cutting loose from home, it would be much fun

Her parents unfair, deserved a good lesson

Of pain, panic and depression

She tiptoed as a thieve from the house

Like a small, tiny ant or a soft, gentle mouse

Quiet, she crept out of the door

Soon her folks would see her no more

Out on the roads she walked and walked

Bruised and broken, her legs felt so locked

In hunger she wept, her head felt so sore

In the pink of the dawn, she stood at the shore

Out there in the mist, it was so bitterly cold

She thought of her warm and loving household

She sat on a rock with her brain in a jumble

With no food for so long, her stomach did rumble

Her spirit was broken, she dropped to her knees

 Is this what it meant to be happy and free?

A dark, frightening ocean is just no place to go

Home is my heaven, now I know, now I know

Now there’s such a lesson in there for all the brats! Taking there parents love and generosity for granted. This is great storytelling by you. With a bit of work it could read even better but for now you are making a great beginning. You are full of creative ideas. Just keep polishing your pen. 😽

It's hard to say such a cute rabbit knitted this amazing piece. Mark my words you'll be a great writer for kids and all. I still read children's bedtime stories. How smoothly I could read your lesson! Without a doubt, have witnessed many of such brats in my life (I was one of them sometimes, just sometimes😅) and the outcome of being a nasty kid is just horrible. If you understand all these facts at this age, all ladies around will be jealous of your mother. Keep shining☆☆

This is a fine narrative, MisterG! It has a wonderful moral at its heart; that no matter how difficult the circumstances or how much freedom calls, there is always just no place like home. Sometimes a brat just needs to experience some real suffering to understand just how lucky they truly are. I enjoyed this one for its message, tale and rhyme. Well done!
