My Blanket

Maitee B., Contrbutor

Music is a blanket 

That I use to cover myself 

from all the monsters 

of this world


That I use

to hide 

from the burdens 

that are too heavy 

to carry


Music is another planet

Where I go 

just to be away

just to feel free 

and alive



in the end 

when my headphones are off

I go back to those monsters 

and the burdens 

that will always be 

too heavy to carry.
