Twinkle Twinkle

Twinkle twinkle, little girl

English: Twinkle Twinkle little star (English)...

Get some guts and be ready to hurl

Bring the toughness here to me

For I am going to be queen bee.

Twinkle twinkle hear my voice

You have left me no other choice

I am drawing my life today

I swear part if it will go my way.

Twinkle twinkle to those who stray

And try to avoid me on this day

Someday you will regret I know

That your cute face never did show.

Twinkle twinkle little star

I don’t wonder now where you are

With friends who care and show they do

I am getting smarter and much taller too.

  1. “Those who have insight will shine brightly like the brightness of the expanse of heaven, and those who lead the many to righteousness, like the stars forever and ever.” Daniel 12:3 Just keep shining, Terry, for all to see. Love your poem.


    • i don’t remember that verse, so thank u for sharing it with me. i don’t know why that nursery rhyme kept sticking in my head, so i let it out. thank you for the verse and the nice comment!


  2. Very good! And I totally agree you are a “twinkler”, I think you invented a new word with your poem!! 😀 Your poem reminds me of a part of a movie that the young lady was told that it was her life and she should be acting like the leading lady and instead she was acting like the best friend – and then was told to watch these old movies that starred women with gumption – you sure did show gumption today like the leading ladies of yesteryear. And yes at the end of the movie, the young lady became her own leading lady! Blessings and hugs ~ Patty


      • As I was typing I kept trying to figure it out..I try to think of that character whenever I find myself acting like the best friend! It starred Kate Winslet (I think that is the correct one from the movie Titanic) ….ummmm…it was a Christmas movie where she exchanges her home with another home for the Holidays…It might be “the Holiday” Cameron Diaz I think is the other one….I am at work now so will check out the title when I get home. It is one of my favorite feel good movies.


      • Thank you – that is so sweet of you. I am so glad I met you, I enjoy our “visits” every day! Blessings –
