If there was ever one thing
that I could never live without,
I'd know exactly the object,
without the slightest doubt.
Every day since I was born,
since I came forth from the womb,
this one thing has been with me,
and I will take it to my tomb.
This one special thing
has never left me abandoned,
and as people came and left,
it remained my greatest companion.
Through trials and tribulations,
as I learned right from wrong,
I've created worlds inside;
books, poems, and songs.
Although it keeps me up at night,
and sometimes drives me insane,
this vastness in my skull
has saved me from such pain.
There is one special thing
that I could never leave behind,
and that one special thing,
is my beautiful mind.
