  1. Hey Phoenix!
    Ananya here.
    I really wanna take part in your contest.
    I hope writing the poem in comments section is convenient. So here’s my poem

    *Adventure of friendship*

    I remember the time I saw it all
    Don’t know if it was real
    But I was in a world all new
    Full with glory and zeal.

    I was not a helpless princess
    Waiting for someone to save me
    I was on a mission
    And an adventure was all I could see.

    I set out on my stallion
    With my trusted blades
    I smiled at the horizon
    Throwing back my braids.

    I rode through forests
    I rode through green
    I fought with my blades
    Like a warrior queen.

    But then I reached a cave
    That seemed to swallow every light
    But I never feared a moment
    And went to the cave like a knight.

    I took out my blades out from their scabbard
    Their carved hilts heavy in my hands
    I looked around in the dark
    Ignoring the shifting sands.

    I heard an angry roar
    Fill up the dark cave
    I heard heavy footsteps
    And my mind told me to dig my grave😬

    But like the queen I was
    I raised my voice and asked
    “Who is there? Why are you here?”
    But just a grunt who’s sadness was masked.

    I thought just like my idol, Batman
    (Though I didn’t know how he existed here😅)
    But in that time I did not notice
    The steps were coming near.

    I took my fighting stance
    My swords in a cross in front
    I bared my teeth and readied myself
    But all I heard was a grunt.

    And then I saw something
    Far beyond what I thought
    It was a huge giant
    I looked at his face and my mind was a knot.

    I saw in his eyes the need for peace
    So I lowered my swords at my side
    I looked at him confused
    He I was a giant but looked like he wanted to hide.

    He read my thoughts and told me
    His entire story
    Of how the people treat him
    With no respect or glory.

    He told me he wants friends
    He never wanted war
    I said I will be his friend
    And his tales will be famous in folklore.

    And before I could even smile
    I felt my cheeks becoming wet
    No no I never cry ,it was my puppy
    My little stupid pet🤗

    So you see it was never true
    Maybe sometimes adventures may not be that bad
    Sometimes you just need to get up
    And just be glad

    Be glad coz you are an adventurer
    You find friends in all shapes and size
    But sometimes friends are adventures
    And that is an adventurer’s prize.

    Thnx

    P.s I really loved your poems🤩
