The Girl Who Cried Wolf

i dreamed of bacon

and soft white steamed seafood dumplings for breakfast

and a friend I once knew.

 

she showed care

and love.

i trusted.

 

mother said

never trust strangers

but strangers I did trust.

 

mother said

never listen to wolves

but to a wolf, I listened.

 

shame on me

i should never have listened

to the girl who cried wolf

for she was the wolf herself

dressed up in sheep clothing.

 

she devoured an innocent little girl

her red cape lying

bloody in the forest deep.

she screamed when it was too late

and rescue never came.

she brought this upon herself

her mother warned

she never listened.

she should have listened.

  1. .. mom probably has faced too many wolves before hence the familiarity—- but we gotta face our own wolves at one point…

    …children learn from their experiences albeit hard and excruciating…
    …moms protect

        1. Kita mo na ba kung gaano ako kasabaw? Najustify talaga yung name ng blog ko hahaha

          Pero kidding aside, isa talaga sa benefits ng pagsusulat ay pwede mong balikan ang mga nangyari, naisip o naramdaman kung naitala mo ang mga ito haha
