Drawing on the Walls

By Sophie Jones

I know I’ll get in trouble

For drawing on the wall,

But this crayon-marker masterpiece

Is my greatest work of all.


If I put my thoughts on paper

For some temporary praise,

They’ll be stuck up on the fridge

And then be gone in several days.


But walls are a sturdy canvas

To scrawl my every feeling.

As I sketch and stretch and scribble,

One day, I’ll reach the ceiling.

It must be odd for...

I kick around the dust...

There is a horrendous roar...

if the mountains call for...

when you’re at the bottom...

I love you mint chocolate...
