A Day of Inspiration

by Aliyah Daley-Reinisch, age 11
A Day of Inspiration Aliyah Daley-Reinisch loves singing, acting, and writing. When she’s not doing any of those things, she can be found making slime, playing games with friends, (pre-covid) and listening to a variety of music from the 1960s up to the present. Her current favorite song is “The Fine Print” by The Stupendium. She writes a variety of story types and genres and likes reading books for inspiration. She’s read so many books she could never pick a favorite!

“A normal day, a nature hike / I grab those shoes I really like / And stroll on down the wooded trail / But then I hear a child yell / I look and see a big old fight / He stomps, the noise echoes through the night”

A normal day, a nature hike

I grab those shoes I really like

And stroll on down the wooded trail

But then I hear a child yell

I look and see a big old fight

He stomps, the noise echoes through the night

I kick a pinecone, ignoring them

And look at the leaves, the flowers, the berries, but then

Somehow they reach a compromise

That parent must be really wise

I head back home, play with some slime

But oh my gosh! Look at the time!

I have to do my online work

Though I really just want to read a book

I turn on my lamp, head to my desk

And find some room among the mess

Then type and type, think and think

My patience finally reaching its brink

I shut the computer, text the guys

And think about that compromise

The child wanted to follow their dreams

At first the parent thought that seemed 

Silly, but eventually agreed

Everyone should voice what they need

I want to do something else

Not put my dreams up on a shelf!

I open my computer and type

And though it takes much grim and gripe

I’m now a published author, yes

And though I may not be the best

I’m doing what I love to do

It worked for me, and it will for you.
