A Step from Dreams

By Tony DeLorger © 2011


Content with dreams,

and the commiseration

of dashed hopes,

life ensues,

with a monotonous expectation

of the mundane.

Ill-equipped to cope with change,

acceptance is a surrender,

a cell of incarceration.

Beyond it,

life is rich with gifts,

beyond dreams,

beyond hopes,

with the promise of possibility.

One step is all

that is required,

the deliverance of a soul

stuck in its own proclivity.

One step to freedom,

dreams without limits,

hopes with resolution,

happiness

without the sour curse of doubt.

One step from dreams,

is all it takes.
