Who in The World Am I?

This thing we call life, is messy and not at all easy.

I am a different person today than I was, you see?

So, why would I want to go back to yesterday?

We’re all mad here, and believe me when I say,

my thoughts are too deep for you to explore.

So, don’t try and follow me down the rabbit hole.


There are times I cannot sleep in this world of reality,

as I know that there is always time for a cup of tea.

Oh, how I long to run; run away from normal days.

But let me tell you a curious, little secret, if I may?

And listen closely: Those who don’t believe in magic,

will remain blind to what is not hidden, and never find it.


I hear you wonder how I have gone bonkers; completely mad.

No, my dear! My mind only went for a stroll, I’m happy to add.

So, please don’t tell me that I can’t – watch me rather while I can,

because I’m just another Alice –

trying to find a way out of my head, into the Wonderland.
