Writing has always been my go-to when I have emotions or ideas I need to let out. When I was about 6 or 7, I would take about 30 pages from the printer, staple them together, write on 3 of them, then take 30 more pages and start a different story. So - more...

Our world, a circus.
"The Circus" by Sophia Delgado

Welcome to the circus! Step right in and take a seat
The show is quite amusing, you are in for such a treat

Here we have the people who can speak but say no words
Here we have the rulers who can sing like cuckoo birds
Here we have the clowns who laugh and joke, but make no sound
Those who think they're going somewhere, but are turning round and round!
Over there, the wealthy ones with nothing on their shelves
Over here, the poor ones who have all things for themselves

Now we have the people who are lonely, lost, and scared
And then again the other ones who never really cared
Broken souls who need some help, alas are left defeated
And souls who yet receive the help they never really needed
Here observe the ones who do not realize what they've found
And lastly here, the earth, which keeps forever spinning round
Pays one point and 2 member cents.
