To Be A Dreamer

Tue, 10/28/2014 - 11:25 -- memilym

He closes his eyes just for a minute,

And runs to a place where his troubles end:

A wondrous world—he’s free to explore it—

In which human confinements break and bend.

 

Further along when he meets the locals,

They instantly realize he’s different;

Wanting to learn their traditions and morals,

His spoken words line-up with what he meant.

 

Others, however, don’t share his ideas.

The authorities have selfish motives—

Forsaking this new world for their own bliss:

In this nightmare place, no one cares who lives.

 

But this can all be just a dream for Jake,

For he’s a dreamer and dreamers must wake.
