Sitting in my room
Behind a mask of homework
I ponder it all

Biology books
Pages flip casually
I see more than them

Music pulses through
Green walls and brown shades pulled up
I can’t help but think

Math swirls through my head
Earth spinning beneath my feet
I know they’re the same

Sitting in my room
Where did reality go
I don’t care one bit

Tears search for my eyes
My gaze shifts to the window
I sense time’s rare halt

Songs play through paused air
The textbook sits in my lap
I feel the world turn

Cat jumps onto me
Tears finally find their way
I love the soft purr

Existence awes me
Everything is around me
I cease to worry

Sitting in my room
Where did reality go
I found it right here
