A Step Close to Heaven

There is a place in my mind
I’d rather be
No one hurts
No one judges
I am free

Whoever figured out
That mind is a magnet
It attracts what it conceives
He is mankind’s brightest

For when others hurt me
And I hurt myself too
I revisit this place in my mind
Undisturbed by my own
Understanding
Of myself and who I am
No one knows me but me
And in this quiet place on earth
I am a step close to heaven
Always.
