The World Is Not Just Sour Grapes

Updated on October 31, 2015

It Is So Much More

We can complain all day long

Then curse in our sleep

I remember when I was small we had a real witch in our neighborhood

She was down right mean

She acted as if she owned the street

On Halloween she gave out apples

I was convinced life can't be any more scary

Little did I learn there were my fellow classmates

Who were also the werewolfs

Dressed in clothes

Waiting for the right moment

To cause nothing but trouble

Dracula all in black

Smooth talking ladies man

That would get any girl to fall for him

Don't forget Frankenstein's monster

Who had no mind of his own

Some how in the worst of it all

From bank robbers to the evil villains

There was the best of the best

The Lone Ranger who saved the day

Star Wars characters that had space age technology

Cinderella and Snow White

Innocent and incredibly beatiful

Batman and Robin

With their clever ways

Superman with his super strength

Who could forget King Kong

Not just any animal

Who can resist a dog,bird or a frog

So Halloween was preparing me for life

Every time I was scared out of my wits

There was always a famous star of the time

James Dean to Indiana Jones

Bruce Willis to Rocky

When things just looked better than ever

A scary pirate or a past president

I am not sure what is the worst

We all have our favorites

In the end the candy was the Prize

Even though our feet were tired

We always made room for more candy

From the time the street lights went on

To the last yawn

A sexy model to a army man

Police officer to lay down the law

It felt like Halloween could last forever

In some ways it still does

In the hearts and minds of every child

They can choose to be anyone

They might surprise us with something so different

Then again they could be the same as before

A little bumble bee

Have you ever seen anything so cute

To a lion or a cat

We all think so different

The world would be boring and dull if we didn't

So God had a plan

We are here to figure it out

One day at a time

No sense in rushing

We all are going the same way

Why not walk side by side

Until we are scared

Then we bolt as fast as we can

Holding our bag of candy tight

As if our life depended on it

We couldn't help it

Dropping a few pieces of candy

As we run far away

Happy Halloween to all of you

Have a safe and fun filled day

      Dream On, this was an enjoyable look at Halloween and many different characters. I have loved reading the many different hubs others have written to celebrate the occasion, including writing my own. Special holidays and occasions are a good inspiration for writing new hubs aren't they? Have a great day.
