Pirates

When I heard the word pirates, “The Goonies” was always on the top of my list growing up. However, ever since I became a mom, other films have pushed my childhood favorite to the back burner. Now, I think of Tinkerbell when it comes to pirates?? Yes, yes I do! I especially think of Zarina. So, this poem will be about her.

A Guy Called Bloke and The Britchy OneΒ have asked that I tag them in on this since this was in fact their idea. πŸ˜‰ Special thanks to you both for your sense of community and for nudging me to write about something that I may not have ever considered.

Zarina

With a spirit of curiosity

She mixes the dust and nearly takes out their pixie dust tree

Her boss said that her mistake was too dangerous for their survival

So he dismissed her, and she leaves, only to become a rival

Her fairy friends come to look for her, to save her, and bring her home

But instead they find out that she has moved on, becoming a pirate, and creating tricks of her own

It is when she is betrayed by them there pirates, that she says sorry, and then plans to face the world all alone

She then finds that her friends and boss welcome her back even though she was wrong

Being the Disney film that it was

There is a great ending with smiles and hugs

In real life I want to say that this can also be true

God will always take us back whenever we are through

So, like Zarina, we can feel supported and secure because for us God will always be there

Even if we mess up, go astray, and do things that are unfair

In real life it is good to learn from our own mishaps

But being a true Christian means that we take it one step further, and share what we did, so that others around us can learn from our mistakes too perhaps

You can call this being a pirate if you will

Because seeing what others do wrong and learning from it, so that we do not mess up is actually a steal!

I hope that you enjoyed this poem. It is my only my 3rd one so PLEASE go easy on me. Thank-you! To make up for my bad skills in poetry… here’s a drawing!Β  πŸ™‚

    I’ve watched my fair share of fairy movies. And that’s a great rendition. We’ve gotten our kids into the goonies. My husband told our girls he was chunk and they believed him. Lol. The pirates of the Caribbean movies are great too. I think that’s where my mind goes first now.
