"I don't know half of you half as well as I should like and I like less than half of you half as well as you deserve."


When I close my eyes
All I see is green
The grass is green
The trees are green
The leaves are green
When I close my eyes
All I see is life
The flowers are alive
The wind is alive
The beasts are alive
The rocks are alive
When I close my eyes
All I hear is music
The waterfalls are rushing
The birds are singing
The thunder is a drum
The rain is the melody
When I close my eyes
All I feel is freedom
The sky is blue
The clouds are white
The water is clear
The soil is brown
This is my world
The world that I see
When I close my eyes
And ignore reality
In my world
I have no chains
I have no responsibilities
I can do as I please
And there is no one around
To judge me
Or mock me
Or laugh at me
Based on what they do not know
And what they will never know
For they are my secrets to hold
In my world
Every petal on every flower
Knows my secrets
Every cell within every being
Knows my secrets
Every raindrop in every storm
Knows my secrets
And for my sake
They dare not tell anyone
My precious secrets
In my world
I can run
And never bump into concrete
Or steel
In my world
I can swim
And never taste oil
Or pollution
In my world
I can breathe
And not poison my lungs
With foul air
It is lonely in my world
But I prefer it that way
I have no one's hand to hold
No one to look after but myself
I am free of chains
And commitments
I have the birds
I have the trees
I have the water
I have myself
I can keep myself company
By creating more secrets
That only I and my world
Will ever know of

I wish I could really escape into "my world". Don't we all have our own little worlds?
