Sally sat inside each day,
She rarely left her room.
She loved to play computer games,
And at night, stare up at the moon.
Even when it was sunny,
Sally didn't leave the house.
She sat up in her bedroom,
As quiet as a mouse.
One day, Sally's Mam knocked on her bedroom door
Telling Sally to “go out and play!".
Sally wagged her finger screaming:
"Close the door, just go away!"
Sally then looked at her finger,
She had wagged with all her might.
She realised she was angry
And it gave her quite a fright.
Her finger pointed towards the door
Giving her a terribly sad feeling.
As she sat there on her bedroom floor
She looked up at the ceiling.
"I love to stay indoors", she thought.
"It's safer than outside".
"I can’t know what I’m missing,
If I lock myself in and hide".
Sally wished she was more wild
And wasn’t so afraid to go a little crazy
But all this hiding from the world
Was making her quite lazy
She thought, “Right now I am a child,
And childhood ends so soon,
But wasn’t every astronaut a child
Before they set foot on the moon?”
Sally stuck her head out of her window,
She was feeling awfully furious.
The sights! the sounds!! the smells!!
They began to make her curious.
She looked back at her finger
And began to wonder why
She had pointed it at her mother
And not pointed it to the sky?
She then gazed up at the ceiling
And imagined it disappear.
The sun, the clouds, the sky
Everything became so clear.
Her finger pointed upward,
As high as it could go.
“I must get out of this house!"
"There’s so much I need to know!”.
“I want to breathe fresh air
And feel it in my lungs!"
"I want to climb the trees
And learn about the sun”.
“I want to skip, I want to run,
I want to get excited.
I want to jump in rivers,
And swim around delighted!”
“Most of all I don’t want to
Sit at home and wonder why
I didn’t follow my finger
When I pointed to the sky!“
* This is a kids story that I found on my laptop half finished.
I hope you enjoyed it. Still needs some work. It would go well
with some pictures I reckon. I haven't blogged in a long time
and I figured life is so much more than a diagnosis so decided
to use this page as a platform for other things too.
