I took myself back to the dream of life stretched far,
its fingers waving in the wind loose and without direction.
I have miles to tread .Un-perturbed this journey beckons.
I took myself back to the dream of perception
and stared at the image, amidst colour and sky
my outline impatiently waiting for content
unaware of a design delicate or dragged.
I took myself back to the dream of ambition
saw mountains and rivers and walls to climb
I felt in my breath and counted my heartbeats
pulled knots as i undid restrictions
I took myself back and recalled all the tears
sent down from a universal reasoning
to test the endurance i had been gifted at birth
I walked through the storms , through the mud.
I took myself back to the dream of life and saw the child smiling
with excitement, she shouts but I answer too slowly.
She will not listen
a tiny speck,
a spell upon a universe
beyond a universe
