Reality Check
Rachel, Age 12, McKinney, TX

What is reality?
Math and huge bookshelves?
Or dragons fighting wizards,
And obeying elves?

To a reader or a dreamer,
these are real as real can be.
But scientists will quickly say,
"that can NEVER be!"

Dreamers dream so called "fantasy"
and question nothing at all.
They'd sit around and read all day,
Read books from wall to wall.

Scientists do calculate,
Teachers teach and speculate.
All confident that they DO know,
Just the way things ought to go.

To me this is all well and kind,
But reality is of the mind.
