When I was a kid

My favorite game was playing Pretend

Then my friends and I could be whatever we pleased

And so we went on adventures

As mermaids we’d discover sunken ships and lost treasures

As explorers we’d uncover the ancient tombs of kings and queens

We were warriors

Fending off beasts and enemies

As witches

We cast spells and curses on anyone who hurt us

But then we “grew up”

And I was left to play Pretend by myself

My friends didn’t need our adventures anymore

So I began exploring by myself

Finding lost worlds

Fighting off the enemy


Playing Pretend

Escaping reality

The only way I can
