"We could learn a lot from crayons. Some are sharp, some are dull, some are pretty, some have weird names, and all are different colors... but they all have to learn to live in the same box."

I use books as an escape.
When I hear them yelling,
I listen for damage
and do not make a sound.

When I hear them yelling,
I run to my room
and do not make a sound,
for I am escaping.

I run to my room,
and close the door
for I am escaping,
bug me no more.

While I am escaping,
I listen for damage.
They ask why I have so many books,
I use books for escaping.
