Poetry Corner: Sophie’s Poem
When you see me on the bench, do not feel sad for I am in another land.
A land where I am free to do what I want.
With wizards and superheroes. With laughter and action and sometimes tears.
Outside my world I am quiet and shy.
Inside my world it’s a wild ride.
Inside my world I smile and laugh, but doing so makes me off track.
People notice when my mind begins to wonder as I begin to ponder.
If only I could stay on track so my mom would get off my back.
The only thing that brings me back is making other people laugh.
