My Own World

It was a bright cold day in April, and the clocks were striking thirteen. Wait a minute I thought to myself….

Thirteen is not on the clock, tick tock.

But in my own world anything can happen.

A scorpion can fly over the sea, or time could stop completely.

Imagine everything that could happen with a pow of action.

The world unfolding beneath your very feet,

because time is like a grumpy bear.

If you anger it, it might bite back.

It is known for quite atrocious table manners.

But it has a kind and gentle heart that shines brightly no matter what.

A heart so bright, like a lantern at night…

I fall asleep perfectly alright.
