Paint— Day Seven of NaPoWriMo

I’m five years old And my walls are blank When with pens and crayons I choose to fix that. With doodles of dinos And portraits of hens I’d call myself an artist If you’d asked me back then. I’m ten years old And my walls are a mess Though I’m told that If we paint... Continue Reading →
