But before that, I would like to thank everyone who entered my competition; I absolutely loved every one of the entries and I want you all to know that you’re all winners for doing such a brilliant job with your stories and poems. It was actually a really close competition, all of the entries were really good and I enjoyed every last one. But we all know there has to be a winner, and that winner is *drumroll* … Aminah!!! Well done Aminah! Please could you email me your address ASAP so I can send you your prize! Again, thank you and well done to everyone who entered. Here is Aminah’s entry…

Always Betrayed
Why do I feel like I am always being betrayed?
I just disappear from lives; I start to fade.
People forget me; they just move on and leave me,
I am like that one autumn leaf that just hangs off a tree.
It hurts very much when somebody betrays you,
You feel so alone and you feel so blue.
The whole world just crumbles around me, myself and I,
Nobody cares if I’m depressed or if I cry.
Friends blew into my life like a sweet, summer breeze,
Then, they steal my heart in a flash, and make me weak in the knees.
We said our friendship would last forever – I said we’d never part,
You never cared anyway, even though I gave everything, my heart.
We had such great times, such fun,
But you can never fix something that’s already done.

P.S. Aminah has written a book of poems which you can buy here.

Blogiversary COMPETITION / Mini Review

Hey guys!

So you know how for my blogiversary last year I had a Guest Post competition? Well I was thinking I could do a competition this year too! It’s open to anyone and everyone and is completely free to enter. Here is the competition…

You have the choice to write either a poem or short story. The theme (for both) is Betrayal. It, obviously, has to be your own work, and please make sure it’s family friendly. Maximum is 500 words, and don’t forget to add some imagination!

If you would like to enter the competition, please drop a comment below saying “I’M A CRAZY CHICKEN” and email your entry to me at simizat@yahoo.co.uk by my Blogiversary, August 22nd. I will judge the competition and the winner will receive a prize, as well as their entry being posted on my blog. Have fun and good luck!

And now for my mini review! Just to make sure, this review has nothing to do with the competition 😉

The Bunny Slippers ~ Emily from For the Bookish

I came upon The Bunny Slippers one sunny day, from the realm of For the Bookish: a wonderful town of book-related stuff by a fellow book lover by the name of Emily. The Bunny Slippers is a short but sweet story which tells the tale of young Lily, who receives a lovely, soft new pair of bunny slippers for Christmas. The novel is set in the year of 1945, and is a story of Lily’s bunny slippers saving the life of her loving father Henry, who is suffering from post traumatic stress disorder. Personally I must say that I found this little tale, though quite moving, extremely delightful and wonderfully written; the words flowed gracefully and every paragraph a pleasing one indeed. I must say that Emily has quite some talent! You may, if you wish, peruse this fine story in the kingdom of Wattpad.

Simi Star rating: ***** (5 stars)

And the winner is…
