Filling our heads with ideas
Ones we might otherwise not think
Opening our hearts, making them flow
Creating memories, lasting forever
Stepping into another’s shoes, and
stretching our sense of self
Revealing make-believe worlds, and
birthing new ones needing to unfold
Bestowing upon us powerful words
changing our worlds
Teaching us order and flow
in times of chaos
Loosening us up
keeping us from turning into stone
Giving us meaning and hope
Letting our eyes feed our soul
