Welcome To My Wonderful World
Age Rating: 10 +
In many ways I am still a child
I'll never belong or fit in.
I may not grow and understand as you do
or think I should.
In your eyes, I am but a child.
Yet I am smart and I can learn
I have love
Lot's of Love waiting to be shared.
I live still in the child's world
of wonder and magic
Yet I must struggle to survive
also in an adult world that
I can never truly understand.
My world is soft and gentle and full of great beauty.
This adult world in which I am forced to live
is often full of hurt and hate.
So whenever I can,
I escape with my little ones to our world
Our special place, where books and stories
abound and things are real.
We explore and discover and grow and learn.
We climb Gordonís Hill and
can tell you where the grickle grass grows
and show you the home of the Lorax
and so much more.
Though I am physically handicapped
I can travel worlds away.
For to me as to all small children,
the magical world that is found in books
is very much real.
We can travel there and we are free.
Friend, Come travel with me and my wee'uns.
Leave your cares and worries behind.
Come spend a bit o' time in our world
of wonder and magic.
