Dream

I took a breath and I didn’t know if it made a difference.

Looking at the colors both light and dark

In equal measure that I both cared about and feared.

They were halos of blue surrounding twin black saucers of

Troubled black.

I’m a child lost in a forest. Afraid of the Grendels and spiders

And unable to focus on the trees I pass because the forest is infinite.

I am a man that has met the monsters and been scarred by them

But as afraid as I am, they have not killed me yet.

I am reason and logic, looking for signs of a trail and knowing I am

Travelling the wrong way.

I am a sprite that takes wonderment at the forces of nature about me,

Loving the earth and its flora with a passion beyond words.

I breathe these in and look again, feeling the breath take hold finally,

Filling me with purpose.

I have hurt panicked and pushed. Adored and resented.

They have taught.

Those facets will find purchase in patience and love.

  1. Remember the great words of Robert Frost ” Two roads diverged in a wood, and I-
    I took the one less traveled by,
    And that has made all the difference”
    Times may seem hard, but the road you travel will be worth the hardships.
