"If you can dream it, you can do it" -Walt Disney


The green of the playground beneath my rubber soles
Burning, slapping, pounding
Eyes on me as I fall
Through the cracks between each blade of grass
Holding on to a swing set
Only to have it slip through my fingers
Down the rabbit hole
The ant hole
The lingering-tears-mixed-with-raindrops hole
Until I am at the bottom
Stars twinkling

To each his own seems to be our motto
and since this is the case
I wish the aliens would come attack us today.
Because only then would we unite as one world,
instead of being separated by our own
governments, prejudices, religions, and races.

Absolutely lovely!
