Today’s post comes from a lovely lady who has chosen to share a poem that she wrote with the world. Enjoy! 🙂

If One Plus One…

By: Priscilla Williams

.

If one plus one equals two

Then why am I not like you?

A little girl counting by fives

Trying to copy copy-cat lives.

.

Ones, tens, and Barbie doll friends

Plastic smiles and chewing gum chins.

Spider silk hair, soft and fair

Floating gently in the air.

.

Mabel Mabel set the table

Jumping rope and cat’s cradle.

Mabel Mabel was her name

A million Mabel’s all the same.

.

A lie times Pi, a teenage sigh

Funny how they multiply.

But if one plus one equals two

Then why am I not like you?

.

Perhaps my perimeter is out of place.

Or maybe my area is a disgrace.

Perhaps my circumference is a bit round….

Or is this me that I have found?

.

No I am not a glorious array

I smile inside and that’s okay!

I travel the path of infinity

Smiling brightly for all to see.

.

Silly ones and threes and fives

Living odd….uneven lives.

If one plus one could equal three

Then I’ve found the truth in me.
