A World in the Mind of a Teenage Girl

Walk into the yard and turn the trees all into toys.

Lay there on the fround and turn the dirt into your joy.

From what I see and what I hear it's all been boring lately.

So I suggest you turn I question mark in for a maybe.

Time your riddles right and make a point that has no since.

Make sure that you're smiling and the money has been well spent.

Innocence and Ignorance it all goes hand in hand.

I'm not sure I'm right but I hope you understand.

I hope you're still searching for the start that has no end.

And all those plastic people have now become your friends.

Before you start to drift and your soul begins to stream.

I just thought I'd tell you that you're listening to a dream..

The author's comments:
The piece as been around and about for a while. Many people have seen or read it. It was a dream I wrote it down because it made no since to me. One day a friend told me I should write a book are this "land I have imagined or something. So I wrote this poem.
