Through my Spyglass… By Toni Cross

 Through my spyglass

I see a different society

I glimpse another realm

The people there aren’t so different

Not robots of steel with diamond hearts

Even though they’re alien to our kind

They sleep and breathe and cry and grieve

To them, we are part of a fairytale

The monsters and trolls of mythology

And we don’t dare touch their world

And they pretend ours isn’t real

My name is Toni Cross, and I was raised on a farm in the far north of the United States. I love to read and write and I hope to use those hobbies in a greater way in the days to come. One of my passions is using whatever influence I have to make a difference in the world.
