In my world

When I lay down to sleep at night
I enter a different place 
Away from this world
into another time and space

In a dimension all of its own
A place where I never feel alone
I can travel anywhere I choose and see
anything I want to see
With no one to hold me back
In my world, I am free

I can go back in time and create
a different scene
and I am happy there
in my own dream
Where my life has been corrected
and complete.
Where I can conquer the enemy
to its own defeat

Where colors are bright
bold and some what unique
I am always at my strongest
no more am I weak

But when I awake I am here
where the world is never clear
and life itself I fear.
Then I have to wait before 
I return again where my body and soul
where once at peace from within
In my own world, where I once had been
