My Sanity

By: Ramya Chilappa

There is a little place in my mind…
that is my favorite place…
in the whole world.
It is my creativity.
My imagination.
There I escape to other lands.
To other worlds and kingdoms.
I become anything I like.
Anyone I like.
This place writes my stories.
This place takes me away…
from the chaos in the rest of me.
Friends, school, boy troubles…
Appearance, cliques, and clothes.
I can forget them all,
if only for a little while.
This place saves me,
from the constant, clanging headache…
that is the world.
This little place in my mind?
It’s the only thing keeping me sane.
