The world around me
Tries to depress me
No matter how I fight it.
Filling my head with discontent
It clouds my very existence.
But today I found hope
In an unlikely place.
I saw a dragon sailing through the air
Fighting a hippo over a lollipop.
You may say I am ridiculous
But I know what I saw and
You can see it too.
Imagine yourself a child again
Looking up at the sky.
What do you see?
