He’s alone in his thoughts as he sits in class. His mind too full of wonder to focus on the task. “Wake up, says his teacher, you’ve got work to do.” “Science and math and a test or two.” But he never hears a word she says. He is lost deep in the fantasy inside his head. He dreams of a world far away Where he can laugh and play. Where girls and boys Can have all the candy and toys. Where dragons can fly And castles soar into the sky. Where monsters roar And eagles soar. Where there are no rules And never a day of school. That is where his mind is at, All day, in that chair he sat. But teacher don’t despair. For while homework he might not care. That boy who you scold Might be the one who changes the world.

I Gotta be me


I just want to be myself.
I’m tired of being someone else.
Because that someone else isn’t me.
It’s not who I was meant to be.

I tried and tried to play the part.
But I knew it was wrong deep in my heart.
If I was a different person of a different kind
Maybe I could play that role just as fine.
But being the person that I am,
I could not play that role, so I took a stand.

Because what is deep inside of me
Is far different from what the world expects to see.
I’ve been made unique, and that’s ok.
I wouldn’t want it any other way.

So I’ll be me and no one else.
I just want to be myself.
