High Five

by Lakesha Jenkins

I run in my mind though my body doesn't move 
I'm much too heavy 
Too stuck 
Too bound by the memories of what life has left behind 
I sway  & I groove, I quiver and shake 
But this body of mine fails to find a path to escape 
So though I'm trapped in a mirror that doesn't reflect much hope 
In my mind I'm running 
Moving into tomorrow 
Finding new destinations 
Treading in fertile soil 
I'm leaving my mark 
IN my mind I don't need this body 
All I need is a spark....of imagination 
Cause imagination is free 
In my mind I am the mirror  
And I'm high fiving me!
