    Because I imagine

    What can I say
    About my thoughts
    What can I say
    About the stream of consciousness that
    Tumbles precariously through my mind
    Everyday, all day and all night
    My imagination is my key to freedom
    Free from the ordinary
    Free from the mundane
    Free to be………………….anything
    My imagination calls me Diva
    It allows me to be the beautiful Black Woman
    That I am today
    Because I imagine myself to be a queen
    I am
    Because I imagine my self to be free
    I am
    Because I imagine Love
    I am loved
    Because I imagine
    There is a world wide open to me
    That is profound
    And infinite
    Because I imagine
    The world is my playground
    Because I imagine

    seems like your imagination doesn't stray too far from reality,
    it just animates it!
    i like this flow.

    Where would we be, without our imagination to take us...sometimes away from what pains us, sometimes toward what brings us joy. I love how this was posed.
