Wonderland This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

There is a place
That exists in my dreams
With creatures who can talk
And flowers who don't sleep

Everything there
is upside down
Backwards and forwards
All jumbled around

My friends are quite different
From what you would think
A rabbit, a mouse
Tweedledum and Tweedledee

There is the Queen of Hearts
But she is not a friend
Do one thing wrong
Then she'll shout “Off with her head!”

Everyone here is mad but
there is one madder still
You can find him at a tea party
That never ends and is never filled

I have a friend
who disappears
He is insane
but very dear

If you get lost
He is there to help
He comes from nowhere
So you can never tell

He is purple and blue
Has a grin and a little fat
If you want to know
It is the Cheshire Cat

Together we have
many different adventures
We stick together
Like birds of a feather

I haven't introduced myself
My name is Alice
I am just a young girl
With little happiness

If you want to find
This secret land
Fall down a rabbit hole and
you'll wind up in Wonderland.
