the way things are

I’m not scared of the dark
but I sleep with the light on low
to feel the warm glow.

I’m not afraid of the water
but I sit on the creek’s edge
to watch the constant flow.

I’m not hiding from the light
but I sleep during the day
to re-energise my soul.

I’m not escaping  my reality
but I read stories in books
to grow from my own fishbowl.
