What is a dream?
A dream is for you.
Not that of another,
Not foolish, but true.

What is a dream?
Is it for childish play,
To be simply forgotten,
At the dawn of each day?

What is a dream?
A risk not to be taken?
A wish not worth wishing,
In fear of heart breaking?

What is a dream?
Is it fiction or fable?
It rests on the dreamer’s
Belief in their able.

What is a dream?
A long shot of false hope?
No, a dream is a picture,
Of a life you could know.

I once had a dream,
I let it run free.
I did not conceal it,
Not hush it, did me.

I believed it each day,
I did not let it age.
You too, should dream,
And your life, it will change.

I am more than my thoughts
I am what’s underneath
I am all sorts of things
Lying low
Buried deep

I am friend
I am stranger
I am same when I’m both
I am daughter
I am sister
Not yet mother
But I hope

I am lover of music
And reader of books
I am more than the picture
You see in my looks

I am strong when I can be
But not all the time
A human
A women
In a body that’s mine

I am happy
I am present
I am as I should be
I am love in abundance
I am free
I am me
