Last night I had a dream

Of a long forgotten place,

As it started coming back to me

Sadness filled my face;

I saw a little boy

Who did not understand,

What was being done to him

At his father's hand;

With nowhere else to run

And no place to hide,

He built himself a box

Deep inside his mind;

Inside the box he went

Where no one else could see,

And there he stayed content in peace

For eternity;

As the world around him changed

And everybody grew,

He remained inside the box

And no one ever knew;

I walked up to the box

To take a look inside,

And tell the little boy

There was no need to hide;

Tears are running down my face now

I could not bear to see,

For when I looked inside the box

All I saw was me.
