Come Inside My Mind - Poem by Jean L. Barney

Don't be afraid, I'll take your hand, as you come inside my mind
So full of wonder with many adventures still left to find
It's a place that's really kind
Everything about it is real, for I can't hide what's inside
It's everything that's pure and true, right from my heart and soul
With every thought, idea and memory safely stored inside
All that is near and dear, even those fears I've never told
It's all real, there's no where for me to hide, once inside
You will see it all, the joy and sorrow I carry within me
All helping me to continue on to whatever is meant to be
Guiding me through my confusion, giving me light to see
Even the very dark side of me
Don't' be afraid, I'll take your hand, as you come inside my mind
What wonders you will find, some of them will even shine
Making you feel so warm and welcome, no longer afraid of my kind
For I am a human being like you, with feelings just like yours, you'll find
With dreams, hopes, desires and needs, at one time
We really do have so much more in common
You'll begin to see all those things, that are in your own mind
Only then will you really know me, for on the outside , we are all one of a kind
