"Some of the best and most beautiful things cannot be seen or even touched, they must be felt with the heart." Helen Keller

I had a dream once
An old woman stared at me
She wore a gray blanket on her head
And her blue skirt was covered in holes
She was real fat with a lot of wrinkles
She showed me a picture of a little girl
I asked her who it was
She laughed and said it wasn't me
I knew she was crazy so I smiled and nodded
She smiled back
She was missing teeth
Then she dropped the picture
Turned into a pony and galloped across the sun
I picked the picture up
It was me
But I was smiling so it couldn't have been
so I ripped it and walked away
