A Child's Imagination

He ran freely around his backyard fighting the dragons and monsters with his imagination.

Knowing if he uses the sword that Daddy made for him it will protect him from anyone and anything.

But how do you fight when Daddy leaves and Mommy seems like she doesn’t want to play anymore and stays inside fighting her own battles.

Confused and alone he may seem, locked away in a mind full of curiosity and confusion.

A sword can’t bring Daddy back, but it can keep Mommy from taking a journey with the angels too.
