What I love most
Is to be curled up
On the couch with a book
In another world, another universe
I can be whoever I want to be.
I can be Ender or Valentine,
Keeping the peace of the worlds,
Or I could be Ace Robin Olds
Dogfighting in my P-51.
All I need is an idea,
Something that will flourish in my mind,
Something that will turn into a dream,
Something that can distract me
From my harsh reality.
I don’t have to be me all the time.
