By Isabelle Evans

I put my headphones in,

And I begin to sway,

I rock back and forth to the music

And welcome in the day.

No one knows I hear it,

I doubt they’d even care,

But my music is special,

I find my quiet here.

It helps me keep my peace

All throughout the day,

That beautiful, sweet music,

Keeps me awake till the end of day.

But then I get home,

I turn the lights off and close the door,

The music goes into my speakers,

And it fills me to the core.

I raise my arms up high,

I hear the neighbors’ dog bark,

No one else can see me,

’Cause I’m dancing in the dark.
