If there is something that I cannot live without,
it would be my imagination, without a doubt.
I was adopted and family means a lot,
and there are things that I have bought,
that I hold close and cherish dearly,
but it is my imagination I choose clearly.
Like a real life version of 'Nim's Island',
I raised myself without a hand.
I have friends that live inside my head,
from shows and movies or books I've read.
I trust them because I know they won't leave,
and that's one less person I have to grieve.
I close myself inside a shell,
and throw reality down the well.
It is imagination I have learned to feed,
because imagination is all I need.
