I Know - Poem by Karen GonzalezVidela

I know men cannot naturally fly,
I know men cannot disappear,
I know Harry Potter is not real,
I know mermaids do not come by,
I know the unicorn will not smile,
I know a time machine will never be mine,
I know what is done will always exist,
I know that of sleep you cannot deprive,
I know that Zeus is not there now,
I know if I die I will not revive,
But I do know that all that can be real,
I know where to find it when I want to disappear,
I know I can suddenly close my eyes,
Imagine what I mostly want,
Or slowly open them now,
And only see
What my mind will allow.

    I saw a documentary on mermaids.
    And it almost proves
    that they exist......iip (Report) Reply
