~Hey, thereee! It’s my blog’s first birthday! Yup, INKSOAKEDSOUL IS OFFICIALLY A ONE-YEAR-OLD INFANT NOW WOHOOO! Hehehe, sorry got carried away in excitement.
Thank you all, for staying by my side and supporting me as I’ve grown through this year. To celebrate my blog’s birthday, I have two compositions coming your way, both of them very meaningful for me. I hope you enjoy! =)
You’re not a genie in a lamp.
You can’t grant my three wishes come true.
No, you weren’t trapped in that little vessel,
And I can see that your skin isn’t blue.
You’re not a mermaid from the waters.
You don’t grow feet when you come out on land.
Oh, your tears don’t turn to pearls,
And you don’t live in castles made out of sand.
You’re not a vampire of the night,
The sun doesn’t burn your skin.
No, you don’t survive on the taste of blood,
And you don’t need an invitation to come in.
You’re not a werewolf of the full moon.
Met with danger, you don’t growl.
No, you’re no Alpha or Beta, not part of a pack.
The moonlight doesn’t make you howl.
You are not part of a fiction,
A beautiful surreal fantasy.
No, you are not perfect, you have flaws,
Because you don’t live in imagination but reality.
Your blood is red and you’ll bleed when cut open.
Oh, your bones can snap under pressure.
Your human heart is fragile and will end up broken.
Little trivial things can give you pleasure.
Yes, you seem weak.
Yet you still exist, smile and breathe.
For you are human, and that in itself is special.
You don’t need to prove your worth to become much better.
You are worth far more,
Than the picture of yourself in your head,
Whether it’s of a warrior with rebellion in mind,
Or a prince or princess on a royal bed.
You’re human so embrace it, and remember what I’ve said.
Live for what you love and cherish and someday,
Your story will be part of the several legends you’ve read.
