i've hoped i was a hero through this life
i've stood in the mirror and hoped for a

shapley nose/ full lips/ sharp as swords cheekbones/ freckles like strawberries/ eyes like moonshine/ blush like a rose/ body like a statue/ thick eyebrows/ strong arms/ small feet

i wanted to move like a warrior &
end myself like Samson did

because when you betray yourself
(even on accident) 

shouldn't you push 
the columns in? 
wow. i almost got through this one without an allusion.

    So I am approximately halfway through my Cedric + Hermione series. I am so happy that so many people have enjoyed this series. Thank you so much! Also, I have two new series that I have recently started writing. “Eight People To Go” and “The Academy of Minds.” Be sure to check them out! Thank you for being such a wonderful follower! ;)

    I like the biblical allusion, actually! This is a very unique and pretty poem.
