A living doll that wants to live

This poem I wrote is imagining that the toy dolls we have are actually alive. Also how our behaviour towards them would change if they had feelings like us. I hope you like my poem! πŸ˜€

Notice that its alive

It breathe silently through the day
In one place it must always stay

It sees and feels and it can hear
Lives its life in the darkness of fear

Scared that one day they’ll make it fall
And will forget to pick it up at all

Or get bored of it in the room
Then throw it away very soon

It just wants a chance to talk
Run away or even try to walk

It wants to drive a car, climb a tree
The opportunity to be free

Its life is just a fight to survive
It wants them to notice its alive

And a little respect they can give
Because it’s a living doll that wants to live!

    Oh, I used to collect those porcelain dolls when I grew up. My room was full of them and I loved them all. This gave me happy memories of childhood.

    Every time I read the Velveteen Rabbit, I cry, every single time. Those childhood objects have so many beautiful memories associated with them. For some of us they were the comfort our family could not provide.
