Poetry Corner: Sophie’s Poem

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.
