The Dreamer’s Prayer

I hope you enjoy this as much as I enjoy sharing with you.

The Dreamer’s Prayer


I don’t know who I am

Or who I’m supposed to be

Good from bad, right from wrong

It is not known to me


Just beyond my reach

Farther than I can see

The lie dances ‘fore my eyes

No truth sets me free


Do I reach for the stars

Or settle by the fire

If my dreams aren’t real

Am I then the liar?


The one who always aches

For more than he needs

With a long open cut

That will forever bleed


Longing or contentment

Oh hear my restless plea

Tell me my destiny

It is not known to me.

When I was seven, I opened one of those little Golden Books (Lassie) and started copying the words down on paper and it set my soul on fire. I have been writing ever since. I don't know where this is going but I invite you along on the journey.
