When my life seems dark and grim,
I travel to places that seem to brim
With adventure and romance.
I am a princess, locked in a tower
Hoping to be saved by a prince’s power,
And graced by his charming dance.
Then I’m a captain, my ship out at sea
Where sea monsters wait, to terrorize me!
Out in the salty wind.
I open my eyes and discover at once
That I’m only dreaming. I feel like a dunce.
I’ve traveled into my own mind.
