within



there is a world inside me
places i like to visit 
a person i love so much
there's pain, of course
but there's abundance of happiness
that makes the pain 
worth suffering.

the future is predictable
as opposed to how it is 
in the world outside 
each day begins with a smile -
and warmth in my heart
happiness of knowing that - 
i wake up with the person 
i love the most;
i hug myself good morning
look in the mirror and smile
tell myself 'i love you -
and you mean the world to me'

each day i dress up
and walk out in the sun
flowers bloom everywhere
air smells of joy.
there's rain, too, sometimes -
the good kind.
the smell of earth 
rejuvenates me
and makes me believe -
that these little things matter.

i walk back each night
tired, but happy - 
feeling fulfilled and overjoyed -
because i know, 
despite what happens in the outside world;

there is a world inside me
places i like to visit 
a person i love so much, and -
i fall into deep slumber
knowing that 
i am loved
i matter
i am complete.
i have myself 
have my sanity
i love myself
and i mean the world to me.
