The World Inside of Me

Childhood

The world inside of me

Is kind of pretty cool

I still am a boy

I still go to school

 

I play through my days

Read books for pleasure

A piggy bank of sorts

Still holds all my treasure

 

Brimming with zeal

I run until I fall

I jump and scream and jump again

For no reasons at all

 

The world is so huge

So confusing like a maze

But I like to find my own way

And walk through this haze

 

The prettiest of girls around

Don’t hold my attention

Except for daily homework

I’m not aware of tension

 

I wait for heavy rains

To play soccer in the mud

I cartwheel and somersault

Yeah – I’m such a stud!

 

The band on my wrist says

Hit First and Hit Hard

I train watching Bruce Lee

My whole body is scarred

 

I do visit this place in me

Whenever things go bad

To cry in my mother’s lap

And hide behind my Dad

 

The world inside of me

Is kind of pretty cool

Wisdom comes along with chains

I’d rather be a fool
