The Deer and The Sheep

One day Mrs. Sheep was walking to the market to get some bread. As she was walking she came across this big crowd of animals who where surrounding a deer. I'm too big to fit through the crowd, she thought, but she eventually she got through it. She saw the deer, she was really pretty too. With her soft, smooth hair, her tall, strong body, and beautiful makeup, she flapped her eyelashes like nobody's business. The sheep became jealous and ran back home to give her self a make over. She walked into her hill house with her children staring at her. She shaved her puffy hair and out water on it to look smooth. She put make up on and flapped her eyelashes. She nagged at the deer, "Who's pretty now, huh?!" The deer asked, "Were you at the crowd, that was a play." The sheep looked confused, so the deer also said "That was a costume, nobody could be their self in that kind of costume. The sheep looked at herself, she realized, she was not herself. She walked home, looking like she didn't feel bad, but she did inside. When she came home her children asked, "Mom, wheres the bread we are hungry, Mom, what happen to you?" They all eventually died of hunger, she died, being someone else, not herself.

Theme

Theme is the main idea, lesson, or moral of the story. There is a couple of themes and morals in this story, but they all tie up together. One is that you were born an original, don't die a copy, if you copy one, your original is ruined. Another one is that you have to be yourself because everyone else is taken and also don't just trust in some thing at first site that you don't know about, think before you act. One last one is that you are enough, don't think negative about your self or else you will turn negative. This all ties up to say, you are yourself, so be it.
