The Books I Write

The books I write aren’t dark and heavy,

Stuffed with drama and angst,

Tears and violence,

Or nightmares brought out to day.

The books I write aren’t cultural,

with BIG and IMPORTANT ideas,

pointing out issues with politics and race,

or shoving my beliefs in your face.

The books I write aren’t real,

With bills and problems to solve,

Broken hearts and addictions and misery,

Splattered across every page for all to see.

The books I write are full of pie,

Puppies and joy and every day life,

Families and smiles and creatures that talk,

And of course, lots and lots of butterflies.

The books I write aren’t in style,

No director or agent has come calling,

No marketing team is eager to promote me,

But that’s all ok.

Because the books I write are for kids,

And those eternally young,

For what is a point of a book,

If not to read it for fun?

Inspired by my friend Jenny, who sent me this article on good taste in children’s literature (and how it’s lacking) : http://maryinmontana.wordpress.com/2013/08/31/guest-post-the-case-for-good-taste-in-childrens-books/.

Stay tuned, Invisible Friends!  A new fun post awaits!
