A Special Happy Birthday:

Your birthday is a special day,
It comes but once a year.
And so I've made this little poem
For those that I hold dear.

You've lived and grown another year
And now you've come of age.
It is time for you to show yourself
Upon this worldly stage.

Some are artists, some are troops
Some are sportsmen throwing hoops.
Some are writers, some are bad,
Some might be the best we've had

Others are fixers, others will fax
A gamer might use some mighty hacks;
There is a plethora of choices for you,
So do what in your heart is true.

But for today let us just have fun
Rock the world and then be done.
For a birthday comes but once a year
And yours my friend is finally here!

"Happy Birthday to you, I wish you all the best and may all your wishes come true."

-From Chen Yuan Wen, to all the November birthday kids, 5th November 2012
A quick little birthday gift for the following lovely individuals:

:iconmaj0rwhal3wankr: - Chase Six, his is on November 5th :3 WISH HIM :3
:icondeerydeerth: - Linda, also on November 5th ^^ WISH HIM :3
:iconlpeebles: - A fan who was looking forward to reading more of my poetry around this time :3 - Wish her ;3
:iconkamenriderjet: - His is apparently on thursday, so it would be 2 days away now? xD [for my timezone at least]
:iconkytelian: - also on thursday apparently :3
:iconcoeb: - on the 16th xD
:iconmidnightaqua246: - Birthday yesterday, so wish them nowz maybe?
:iconizzyhanabikurosaki: - Today is her birthday ^^ WISH! WISH! ;3
:iconoenvy: - 5th was her birthday xD Wow so many november babies :3
:icondaisukedarkness: - hers was yesterday :3 Maybe wish? :3 I think yes xD
:iconxdearlybelovedlacey: - Hers is TODAY! ^^ Happy birthday
:iconikestrel: - Apparently a november baby :3
:iconstevehno96: - B-day on the 6th, wish him xD
:iconkaelaanne: - 30th November x3
:iconiKestral: - 16th
:iconkimou-san: - 19th of November

There are others of course coming up and I will make sure to wish them a happy birthday. I hope that all of you have a good one and may all your wishes come true. I regret I couldn't do something better than a childishly simple rhyme, but a birthday is a birthday after all ^^

Special thanks to my officer :icondiluculi: who takes the time out of her busy schedule to remind this scatter-brain about when birthdays ARE xD

One of the first times that I've really liked your work. The other times it was a sort a decent-to-meh.

You really ought to write more happy things. Rhymes are best for these.

My birthday is also in november, and I hate the day. Because I hate all the attention I get. I prefer celebrating other peoples b-days but not my own xD
Anyway this poem is quite awesome, made me think that maybe it's not that bad. Maybe it's something I should be happy about~
Thank you for this :3

Ye hate attention? Yer an odd one I reckon, but I think there must be deep reason fer ye dislikin' it. Ye don't have t' share, but if you'd like t' I'd love t' learn :3 (send as a note if ye want to cause comments get lost eh? xD)

It's okay, I don't usually expect answers from busy deviants :D

And it's not that interesting matter that I would start spamming notes and stuff *___*
Let's just say I have been in the center of attention in a bad way many times so I don't like it at all, but I'm trying to fix this. Since in the future there will be times like that.. xD

Anyway happy new year, and it's gna be awesome to see/read what kind of stuff you'll be posting this year, keep up the good work~ *3*

When I read this, my heart got full of joy! This made my evening! :love:

Some are artists, some are troops
Some are sportsmen throwing hoops.
Some are writers, some are bad,
Some might be the best we've had

Others are fixers, others will fax
A gamer might use some mighty hacks;
There is a plethora of choices for you,
So do what in your heart is true.


My favourite stanzas (is it the right word? xD ) of this poem! Sure, I love the whole poem, because it is a really heart-warming birthday present, but these are my favourite. ^^

That reminds me, how much I've missed your poetry. Damn school blocks time, but that's how it goes... one day, though, I shall get back to all of your poetry, yet again!

Thank you so much, Chen! It does mean much to me, and I wish happy birthday to my fellow November pals too. :D
