"My Escape"

St. Clare of Assisi School
St. Louis County, MO

I seek a different world,
found between the covers of a book.

My imagination runs wild,
and I unleash the thoughts that crowd my mind.

Ideas, dreams, aspirations,
they all find a place in the lines of ink.

I allow myself to forget,
flaws, imperfections, who I truly am.

And in that moment,
I feel I can be anybody I want to be.
