Once upon a time never existed;
Her childhood was mangled and twisted.
Grief she’s finally feeling,
Her heart mending and healing;
Creating her own, hope persisted.
Mind and life matters limerick challenge, Once upon a time

Freeze from sapphire heavens creates white earth,
Melting to steady rain, sparking rebirth.
Soon, sun burns a fierce smolder,
Long days turn to nights colder,
As colors fall, fading, crackling last mirth.
