I Am Really Happy When…

The times I'm really happy are

The times I can fall back, losing

Myself in a realm of imagination.

The place only  my eyes can see,

A realm of rolling green hills

And gray sky.

A place of peace,


There is the place I can

Relieve myself of reality,

Lay back against the grass

And stare at the clouds passing over me

Letting the real world fall out from under my feet,

And I wouldn't care.

These are the times I'm truly happy,

When I can close my eyes and

Forget being ignored by everyone else.

My paradise,

My heaven,

Within my own mind.
