“Learn to light a candle in the darkest moments of someone’s life. Be the light that helps others see; it is what gives life its deepest significance.” – Roy T. Bennet

In My Head

Dare you look across the vastness

To the silence around you?

It seems you go in circles

Each wave is like the next

And you’d cry out

But your lips are cracked and bleeding

And your eyes

Can hardly stand the evening


See the birds flying above

They know it won’t be long

And you fade in and out

A dreamless state a sleepless night

And you’d breathe slowly

If you had the time to take

And your body

Just sits there and waits


You feel nothing

Nearing the end

You are hoping

You pretend

Where are you going?

A feather bed.

Where are you floating?

In my head.



He told his story like it was brand new

For the hungry children to listen to

He cleared his throat and he took his time

Because sitting there was all they could do

They left behind all their pains and worries

And imagined life as it was meant to be

As they whistled softly to the minstrel’s music

They thought of places that they couldn’t see

While the world grew colder than ever

You could see it in their eyes that they didn’t feel a thing

And the man was sad when it was over

So he sang another song and left them to their dreams
