The Runaway Dinosaur

So, yesterday I came across something which I thought should be shared with each and every one of you. I am currently watch ‘Flash’ series on Netflix and in one of the episodes, a very touching story was shared. It is a bedtime story called ‘The Runaway Dinosaur.’ Please share your thoughts with me after you read this😊

Once there was a little dinosaur called a Maiasaur, who lived with his mother.

One day, he told his mother, “I wish I were special like the other dinosaurs. If I were a T.Rex, I could chomp with my ferocious teeth!”

“But if you were a T.Rex,” said her mother, “how would you hug me with your tiny little arms?”

“I wish I were an Apatosaurus,” said the little dinosaur, “so with my long neck I could see above the treetops.”

“But if you were an Apatosaurus,” said her mother, “how would you hear me in the treetops when I told you I love you?”

“What makes you so special, little Maiasaur?” said her mother. “Is it your ferocious teeth or long neck or pointy beak? What makes you special is out of all the different dinosaurs in the big, wide world, you have the mother who is just right for you, and will always LOVE YOU”

Hi! I am a 13-year-old currently studying in the Netherlands. For 5 years, I was studying in London and moved to India for some time in July 2019. First of all, I love playing the western flute and have been playing for quite a few years now. Playing and also, listening to music is definitely my passion. Some sports I enjoy playing are badminton, netball, swimming, football, cricket (these are the top 5!). Ok, so let’s talk about poetry. I wrote my first poem in a primary school in England and this inspired me to start writing poems on WordPress. Some of my recent poems are about global issues such as climate change, depression, bullying etc. Writing poetry is another passion of mine…so, check out my poems on WordPress. I don’t know what else I could say here so, hope you love my poems…..happy reading!!
