Affirmation Poem: My Dreams Walk Beside Me


(What’s an affirmation poem? See the beginning of Affirmation Poem: Endless River of Living Fire)

MY DREAMS WALK BESIDE ME

Not a whisper,
lost in the wind.

Or a shadow
forgotten in the day’s sunlight.

Brighter than the light that greets dark eyes,
sharper than any sword,
endless as the space between stars.

MY DREAMS WALK BESIDE ME

Do I see,
the impossible?

Thirst,
for what I cannot taste?

Teach,
what I don’t know?

And give,
what is not mine?

MY DREAMS WALK BESIDE ME

Do I just imagine a great lie?

Or does all possibility,
bright and dark,
flow through me?

Like fire,
that I have lived a thousand times
and will live again a thousand more.

MY DREAMS WALK BESIDE ME

I stumble through a dark place,
where dreams lie broken and starving upon the ground.

A graveyard,
where the bodies rest,
still dying,
while their shadows yet walk the earth.

MY DREAMS WALK BESIDE ME

Why do men pretend to be nothing,
even as they lay dying?

And why do shadows,
pretend to be men?

Their voices only a whisper,
their eyes dark and empty,
their hearts bitter and small.

MY DREAMS WALK BESIDE ME

I will walk once more,
as a man,
with air around me,
sweet as roses,
and strong as stone,

With water that takes every shape,
and lifts up a world to smile at the stars.

With dreams that will burst into life,
moment after moment.

My dreams are not outside me,
alien,
distant,
or thin like paper.

We are one.
We are here.
I am not alone.

MY DREAMS WALK BESIDE ME
