When I was little girl.
I would often have my eyes closed.
My father thought that I closed them because I was ready for a nap.
My mother thought I had allergies.
My brothers thought I was crazy.
But the truth they'll never know is
That I would close my eyes so tight
Until a kaleidoscope of colors would blow my mind.
Then I would open them slowly
To once again see the beauty
Of the world before me.
It was magical.
And for those few kaleidoscope like seconds;
Everything was awesome.
