I wrote this poem when a young man was murdered in London for his ethnicity, it moved me with grief seeing the hurt and pain of his family and this poem is written in memory of him, hope it is a blessing
I wrote this poem going through a very difficult time in my life and it was then I knew the power of prayer, hope it is a blessing to you
My dear child in a planet far away in this vast universe of universes there existed the cutest little creatures called the Innotions, they were a cross between a butterfly, firefly, bee and dragon fly, they had the cutest little faces
In this planet called the Innotion planet in a universe of universes the Innotions had friendship with the flowers, they had a loveable comradeship with the flowers the flowers would not have existed with out the Innotions and the Innotions would not have existed with out the flowers
The flowers were pink, silver, gold, blue, purple orange and rainbow coloured, the innotions took honey from the flowers and took the pollen from the flowers in cute little buckets and transferred them to different flowers making such beautiful flowers that surpassed human imagination
The innotions had a king called Caesar and a queen called Cleopatra, they ruled the planet with love, law and order and they had a wise innnotion called Obah who was the advisor of the King and Queen, and was also a judge.
One day on planet earth there was a little boy called Ralph, who was 8 years old and was playing in the flower patch in his grandma’s garden, he was chasing a beautiful butterfly and as he was playing he saw a beautiful blueberry in the blueberry bush “but children this was a magic blueberry” it was bigger and more juicer looking than the other blue berries.
As he ate the blueberry suddenly he was flying in the air sitting o the butterfly, he was flying in the clouds, up above the clouds Ralph screamed Whoooa as the passed the moon and suddenly they landed on a soft beautiful pink flower, Ralph opened his eyes and said whoa where am I?
He was surrounded by the innotions.
The innotions were speaking among themselves who this funny cute creature was and were talking to them selves if this creature spoke any English,
Ralph scratched his blonde hair and said Hi I speak English. Immediately the creatures stopped talking and looked at this funny creature,.
Then the wise Obha Innotion spoke and asked him his name , Ralph spoke out his name and then the Obha spoke “ You Ralph son of an earthling have been sent here on a mission by our forefathers you dear boy are the chosen one to hold the magic sword of Good to protect this planet from evil scientists from another planet in another universe.
Raplh scratched his hair again and said me the chosen one, Obah said yes you my boy, as Raplh was looking around the older women Innotions were making a fuss over Ralph and said “boy you must be hungry and gave him some yummy honey cake, and dewdrops that tasted like fizzy raspberry soda and yummy pollen sweets, Ralph had not tasted anything as “yumerfull” as the food given by the innotions.
Then the wise innotion, Obha spoke saying there was going to be a time when the evil scientists are going to try and capture the innotions but that was why Ralph was chosen to protect this planet from the evil scientists. The Obha spoke that Ralph has the power to protect the planet of innotions by using the force of the magic sword and the chosen one will make the planet invisible to the evil scientists.
Ralph then met the king Caesar and queen Cleopatra of the Innotions.They spoke to Ralph and as they were speaking they saw a large spaceship approaching trying to find the planet, so all the innotions held hands and Ralph stood in the centre and obha gave him the magic sword suddenly the sword took on a brilliant light that went all across the planet and Ralph held on to the sword and immediately the evil spaceship disappeared, Ralph was exhausted and went to sleep on the mountain,
Suddenly Raplh heard footsteps and heard his name Ralph…… Ralph…..
Ralph scratched his hair and opened his eyes he was tucked up in bed in his favourite blue car duvet and in his pyjamas,
He looked out of the window and saw the most beautiful butterfly with it’s wings glowing,
Raplh Ralph boy you will be late for school, Raplh looked at the sky knowing in his heart in a far of land, in a far of universe, there were cute little creatures called innotions
Ralph ran down the stairs, ran outside to the lane there the butterfly followed and then disappeared into the trees “Ralph oh Ralph you are one lucky kid”
In a far of country where food and money was difficult to obtain, there lived a little girl called Jenny with her grandmother in a small hut. Little Jenny had no shoes she used to watch the rich children playing in the park with their beautiful shoes.
As Christmas was approaching she knelt down by the side of her bed and prayed “ Dear Santa please give me new shoes for Christmas I have been good please oh please can I have red new shoes, it was a cold Christmas eve she held on to her shawl as she prayed,
Suddenly in the quietness of the night she heard sleigh bells ringing and as she looked outside the window she gasped in surprise as she saw Santa with his reindeers
Santa put his finger to his mouth and said shhhhh and gave Jenny a beautiful red parcel and told her to open it in the morning
Jenny gave Santa a hug and tried to sleep but she was too excited to sleep, As the sun rose in the early dawn Jenny ran to her parcel and opened it with sheer delight and there she saw the most red shoes with buttons. So Jenny put on her red shoes which fitted like a glove and out of curiosity she pressed the blue button, suddenly she was flying in the sky and she screamed in shock, fear and happiness, she then landed on a beautiful island and there were beautiful trees berry bushes and plumps and coconut trees, Jenny sat down and was eating a juicy plum when she met a cute little boy called Daniel, Daniel taught Jenny how to pluck the juiciest plumps and also how to climb the coconut tree and then jenny pressed the red button and was back at home with her grandmother ,She then showed her grandmother her magic shoes and her grandmother hugged Jenny with joy, but it was Christmas day and there was no food for grandma or Jenny and they were both very hungry, suddenly jenny saw the pink light flickering on her shoe and then she pressed the pink light and immediately there was a table with turkey, rice, noodles, cake and pudding granny and jenny ate till they were full and granny warned jenny not to tell her secret of her shoes to anyone.
Near Jenny house there was a wicked goblin, who was very curious, As granny went to sleep after the wonderful lunch Jenny pressed the purple button and immediately the hut was turned into a mansion, the wicked goblin could not understand how their hut had turned into a mansion and then noticed jenny running with her shoes with the lights flickering as the goblin started following jenny running after her jenny got scared till the shoes spoke to her and told her to press the black button and immediately the goblin was sent to another planet not to trouble Jenny or her grandmother anymore
In the meantime Jenny and Daniel became very close and became best friends, when Jenny was 16 years and Daniel was 18 years Jenny and her grandmother moved to the Island and Daniel and jenny got married, as Daniel kissed jenny they heard sleigh bells in the sky and then saw Santa on the sledge waving at them jenny gave Santa a flying kiss and as Jenny and Daniel held hands they heard ho ho ho merry Christmas and happy wedding day
They got married on Christmas day as Jenny looked down her shoes had changed to glass slippers to match her wedding dress there were no more buttons
Sometimes dear children Santa may not bring big gifts but small gifts which can change your life around, so when you write to Santa ask him for that special little gift for special little you
Ho ho ho merry christmas
