    Sometimes....
    I take these trips in my mind,
    to far away places and I don’t want to leave.
    I want to stay there. Safe.
    Away from pain and rejection.
    I run away to places
    like the world’s abused child.
    Here my parents cannot hurt me anymore.
    I feel safe. And secure.
    In these far away places
    the tears no longer drop from my eyes.
    And the sun..
    The sun is shining bright.
    And at night you can see every star’s twinkle.
    There is no rain, in the far away places.
    I guess because there are no cloudy days. Or nights.
    But I wonder how the oceans get their water?
    And how do the animals drink?
    Oh well. I don’t know.
    All I know is I feel safe here.
    I don’t have to prove myself to anyone.
    I don’t have to pretend to be what I am not.
    I can just be. And that is….. beautiful.
    Sometimes I run to this place and music is playing.
    Beautiful music. And it’s not like what I know.
    It’s a music I never heard before.
    But I kinda’ like it. You know.
    Cause the music makes me feel calm.
    I feel like the birds way up high in the shy.
    I feel like flying. Flying high into the sun.
    And the sun wouldn’t burn me up.
    Not in my safe place.
    I would just fly right into it.
    And perch on a sunbeam!
    Man, it feels cool too. You know?
    Like a perfect, safe place.
    Sometimes....
