    YESTERDAY I DREAMED, BUT NOT LIKE I DID TODAY

    TODAY I DREAMED THAT I WAS ON THE OUTSIDE LOOKING IN
    I LOOKED ME UP AND DOWN, I WASN'T SURE OF WHO I WAS LOOKING AT
    BECAUSE I HAD NEVER SAW ME IN THIS MANNER BEFORE

    I SEEMED TO BE SEARCHING FOR ANSWERS TO QUESTIONS THAT HAD NEVER BEEN ASKED. EVERY STEP I TOOK WAS LIKE MY FIRST STEP
    I STARTED OVER AND OVER AGAIN, ONLY TO FALL

    EACH TIME I REGAINED MY FOOTING, I LOST SIGHT OF MY DIRECTION
    ONCE I VIEWED MY DIRECTION, MY VISION WAS BLURRED AND HINDERED MY SIGHT.

    I WAS CONSTANTLY IN A STATE OF DISARRAY.
    I WAS COMPLETELY OBLIVIOUS TO MY SURROUNDINGS, BECAUSE THIS WAS NOT THE IN CONTROL ME THAT I'VE ALWAYS KNOWN.

    MY DREAM EXPOSED WHAT I COULDN'T ACCEPT.
    MY DREAM ALLOWED ME TO SEE INSIDE A SOUL THAT WAS ALWAYS YEARNING TO FIT IN AND FOR THE MOST PART DID.

    TODAYS DREAM LED ME TO TOMORROWS REALITY THAT I MUST EMBRACE
    EVERYTHING WITH IN ME.
    TODAYS DREAMED SHOWED ME THAT SUPPRESSION LEADS TO MISUNDERSTANDING AND DENIAL LEADS TO REGRET.

    IN ORDER FOR ME TO DECREE AN EXPANSIVE PESONALITY
    I MUST LET TODAYS DREAM GUIDE ME TO MY FUTURE.
    I MUST CONTINUE MY FOCUS AND CONNECT WITH THE CREATIVE POWER THAT DWELLS WITHIN ME,
    FOREVER HOLDING ON TO MY VISION (DREAM).

    MsmochaB, this piece took me to a place in my space that I've never put into words, and you have done it so skillfully. It describes one of those in depth looks at ourselves that just don't happen everyday. This was masterful.

    A dream deferred may sabotage reality.

    Better wake up and see, like Ms_MochaB
