Poem – I took myself back to the dream of life

1 min read

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


Hiya, I am Lauren, a lifestyle traveller, writer and health Nerd. Due to lockdown I decided to get on with writing my blog and catching up with friends new and old. I believe we are one world that for most of us wants to promote peace and goodwill to each other, wherever you are in the world I wish you well. I hope we connect and share our stories.
