a very strange friend


i have a very strange friend

i find him in museums

and i find him in alleys

but sometimes i can't find him at all

even if i look really really hard

my friend's name is creativity

he shows up at the oddest hours

and makes it hard to concentrate

VERY hard to concentrate

my friend has a lot of other friends

sometimes i worry

he likes them more than he likes me

but when i'm sad

and feel alone and small

he is always there to remind me

magic is all around

even in the alone place

which maybe

is not so alone at all
