DOORWAY TO A DREAM

Standing at the threshold
Having followed the sacred path
I emerged from my own crysallis
Discovering the colors of my heart

I hold the key in my hand
Unlocks the doorway to a dream
I give all I have in offering
Yet still am not bade entry

ELEMENTS

When great expectations
Fall short of delivery
Needs and wants
Remain unfulfilled

Wishes and dreams
Turn to imagination
Tears and pain
Are all too real

Search for the River
Without any banks

For life is precious
Time too short

We shouldn’t waste
What elements of each
We currently possess

Though it might not be
Exactly what we want

What we dream
What we imagine
What we hope
What we live for

Forced to embrace
Search for sanctity
Bending time
Feigning happy

It’s not right or wrong
It just is what it is
So we struggle to survive
Whatever way we can

Because only change can happen
When we change our selves
