A funny poem I wrote about Valentine’s Day
WHY I LOATHE VALENTINE’s DAY
While love can always be in the air
It’s the commercialism of the holiday that I don’t really care
Love is something deep and true,
but then the TV has to advertise with appetizing candy commercials too.
The Internet flashes colorful eye-catching romantic flower ads
that pop-up about just as fast as green spring grass…
And you wonder why some single people
on this widely advertised day,
feel so blue.
Love is indeed everlasting
and can join people together in unison.
We love our parents, sisters, brothers,
grandparents, friends and spouses
But if I had my choice on Valentine’s day,
I’d rather be fasting…
Than see all the commercialism that grows a limb of greed.
Our God, is a loving God indeed…
With his undying and everlasting faith and love.
But I don’t think an over-advertised sugar-coated holiday
is what the big guy had in mind up above.

“Within the depths of our mind, we are battling the duel of light and darkness…good and evil…love and hate…” Between Light and Darkness is Ariana’s most recent collection of poetry… Cherry’s frequent message she delivers throughout her work is, “The journey through the darkness, back into the light.”
Her hope is to let others know that they won’t be in that place of darkness for long – that they indeed can reach the light once again…She also wants her readers to know – that – it is okay if they find themselves in that bleak blackness…Sometimes we feel guilty for going to that dark place – but it is necessary to conquer the demons that battle our souls….
Other books that Cherry has written include "Only If" and "Twisted Paths Poetry." Her epic tale, “Only If,” won the “Reader’s Favorite Award” and a 5 star review…and her collection, “Twisted Paths Poetry,” received a 5 star review from Realistic Poetry International.
She has been writing ever since she was a child. Some of her inspirations include Edgar Allen Poe, Robert Frost, Stephen King, Emily Dickinson, Christopher Pike and Shel Silverstein.
Ariana writes a variety of genres: inspirational, humorous and horror – although writing horror is one of her favorites…. She was 12 years old when she read Poe for the very first time – which inspired her epic poetry tale, “Only If.“
