I Was Born This Way (limerick)

Updated on January 29, 2015

I thought that my father would die

When I fell in love with a guy

But no love was dearer

Or purpose far clearer

When there in the mirror stood I

I couldn't resist. :))

      I have the same question as Peggy W, do you write the limerick and find the picture or do you find the picture and write the limerick? Jamie
