She smiles, but oh, she does not mean it.

She weeps inside.

Her hair longing to be brushed.

To be held.

To be part of just a day.

Strewn in a chair.


He once showed such promise.

Now tossed aside.

The smell of gas.

The sound of an engine rumble…

No Races to be won today.

The dream of a perfect house.

A Princess awaiting her Prince!

A kiss of love!


No Happily ever.

The war will never be won.

Perhaps, the battle.

But not the war.

Songs unsung.

Music unheard.

Dancing undanced.

All lay still.

Her eyes beg.

Will anyone love me?

Now, she sits.

And forever waits.

Signs of wear we see!

But memories made long past.

For no one can compete….

With technology.

  1. Thia is so funny and so true!

  2. What a cool post. I love the poem.

    Sadly, I fear toys will go the way of 8-track tapes and vinyl records…all because technology took over the world. LOL

    I read this on my phone. In a reader. With no pictures. While thinking the entire time, Trisha sounds so sad today.

    Ha ha ha! That is too funny.

    What a cute post!

  4. My kids are the opposite. They’re more content to play with the toys that don’t make noise. They love their blocks, the Legos, cars, action figures, balls, etc. Not to say my 8yo doesn’t enjoy a game on the computer or on the Wii, but he doesn’t beg for it.

  5. Oh my! I know that situation so well!

    Getting an idea here – maybe I should be using their lack of interest in their toys as an excuse to get rid of some of the toys. (I’m always looking for/needing ways to declutter.)

  6. Great post Trisha! I know how you feel. My 3 year old is constantly playing his daddy’s DS and my 6 year old is constantly begging to play on the computer. Can you guess what they are getting for Christmas, LOL!
