This poem was written on June 2, 1995. I used to spend a lot of time making up stories in my head. I still do that, but I write them down now.
I imagine all the things I’m good at
I imagine the things I can do
I use my imagination so much
I don’t know the difference
Between the false and the true
I imagine how I look
And how many friends I have
Being inside my imagination is like a book
The stories change
But really things stay the same
My imagination is driving me insane
I imagine all the things I have
I imagine how I am
I imagine what I wish to be
I never imagine what I really am
To my imagination must never be found
If anyone does I will be let down
My imagination will never work again
I must admit
My imagination is my best friend.
