Come. Take my hand and fly with me. Travel over the mountains and plains and miles of oceans. Join me on this adventure to a place within every child's imagination. Just close your eyes and breath. It's a lot closer than it seems.

Childhood Imagination

by Ivoryannalise

Neverland,

Second star to the right and straight on till the morning light.

Its far more than a place of imagination.

It's each child's own unique creation.

It's a place full of laughter and tears,

Where we could waste away for years.

Where fairies fly and children believe.

Where no one is left on their own to grieve.

Neverland,

Second star to the right and straight on to the morning light.

It always closer than it seems.

Even though it may be stuck in your dreams.

It turns your world upside down.

And as always, it destroys your frown.

For it is always here,

And it is never at risk to disappear.

Neverland,

Second star to the right and straight on till the morning light.

It will always await you.

Even as the whole world seems to breakthrough.

This special place full of magic,

Where our stories will never be anything tragic.

This is where our childhood hearts shall rest,

Even as our fateful beliefs are put through more than a test.

Neverland,

Second star to the right and straight on till the morning light.

This poem is inspired by the magical world that J.M. Barrie brought to life for us all to live in over and over again each time it's put on stage or read aloud. It inspires me daily.

@bernardtwindwil :D I really had to push myself with the word choice because every time I would think of the first line, I couldn't find another word to rhyme with it. Thank you so much for reading and commenting! :D

The rhyme scheme and meter were lyrical. Your word choice was compelling. You established the dream like scenes for your readers. Great poem!!!!
