Random poem I wrote

So, there is this place in my head

Where “the wild things are”

Where the grass is always greener

And where the air is always cleaner

Where nobody dies and where nobody lies

Because there is never a doubt that there will be food on the table

And there is no need to shout about

Things that stress you out

Because everyone is perfect

There is this place in my head

Where creativity is an asset and

Where there is no one made to asses

The value of a creation or put a label on art

Where no matter who you are or what you do there will always be a place for you

Because people see the worth in every skill

There is this place in my head

Where my stream of consciousness is

Utilized and I perceive everything in a

Different light

because I realize that the time it takes you to grasp something is time enough for it to disappear

So, you see, there is this place in my head

That is a paradise,



But not unobtainable

Because, you see, it is all just a mental thing

I am an artist...I am a writer...I am a factory worker...I am a dad...I don't always want the world to know the everything about me. But I cry inside for them to hear my imagination singing in the canyon of my mind. Your piece was very talented. It reached my artistic side deeper than word ever know. Thank you!

Thank you so much! That really means a lot to me. I never considered my poetry to be anything special, but now that I know it has touched at least one person, I consider it a success.
