Hey I Won Something · 4:52am
Well I know I have not written anything yet storywise so I am not expecting any feedback but hey I thought this was cool enough to post anyway.
Oddly while I prefer stories the first and thus far only Pony related material I have done thus far is a poem. Funny enough I avoided poems like the plague so it is funny that I decided to do this. The poem was for a contest and it was to be a serious poem about Pinkie Pie. Being a Pinkie Pie fan I decided to give it a shot and I got second place so without further ado here is the Poem "One Trick Pony" (title is temporary for now)
Since the day my mother bore me,
I was a pony of extremes,
at first like a rock silently,
and then parties and chronic memes.
Extremes are fun and friends are too,
but sometimes I feel like a foal,
I look glad but that is not true,
so what is this knife in my soul.
They say you see in the eyes,
the truth of who you are inside,
with mirror magic I gave rise,
to things that friends did not confide.
All that they wanted was more fun,
never thinking of their actions,
my poor Ponyville was overrun,
I understood the reactions.
Seeing the writing on the wall,
the painting deciding my fate,
I realized if I now fall,
my lesson would come far too late.
I fought through boredom unaided,
I regained my true sense of self,
pinkies were gone and fear faded,
my troubles were left on the shelf.
two lessons learned but one was mute,
that one lesson filled me with dread,
and while they think of me as cute,
I have a big question ahead.
Am I just a one trick pony,
looking for laughter with no thought,
can I be true and not phony,
more real than the copy I sought?
Feel free to comment on it if you like. Big thanks for Emerald Flight for having the contest and choosing my poem for 2nd place!
