Been yanking on his face hairs since she was a wee little babe

Every day was a repeat of the last, and he loved every minute of it

And yet, one day she decided she was too old to do it anymore

Reaching for his own face hairs, he gave them a tug

Damn that hurt.  It just wasn’t the same.

Defy (an acrostic poem)

Don’t give in.  You can do this

Even if they’ve pushed you down ten times, you’ve got to get back up

Finish the race and show yourself who you know you are

Yanking victory from those trolls who didn’t believe
