Library of Souls

figure in ash storm

Each one has something in them
A skill, a trait, that’s unique
We honour the souls so pure

We can read, we can admire
In a library of souls
Each one has something in them

Free the spirit, free the souls
Roaming around in this world
A skill, a trait, that’s unique

Let them remain untainted
Don’t give in to evil deeds
We honour the souls so pure

#WQWWC – Writers Quote Wednesday Writing Challenge – “Fantasy”

Leicester City’s Fantasy*

the footballing fairy tale of Leicester City
everyone was surprised of what they’ve done
every win has moved into the realms of fantasy
young and old alike cheering them, it was fun
gone were the myths that big clubs were the keys
enjoy it and let’s all celebrate what they’ve won
