So, I had this idea, and I don't think I could make it into an actual poem myself, but I thought it would make a good thread.

Take an animal (it started when I heard some mourning doves), ask it a question (I asked--wait for it--WHAT IT WAS MOURNING! How original.) and then add rhyme.

I'll start. (Well, duh.)
~~~~~
"Whatcha mournin', Mournin' Dove?"
"Sally Sue has lost her glove."

"Why ya yowlin', alley cat?"
"My poor tail got squished by a bat."
~~~
And so on, in the style of a children's book. XD
"Ok, Lolpup. You can be a girl worth fighting for."

Owning our story can be hard but not nearly as difficult as spending our lives running from it. Embracing our vulnerabilities is risky but not nearly as dangerous as giving up on love and belonging and joy—the experiences that make us the most vulnerable. Only when we are brave enough to explore the darkness will we discover the infinite power of our light.
— Brené Brown
