Dream Never Dreamed Before- A Poem

Dream Never Dreamed Before

I closed my eyes tight at night

And dream a dream never dreamed before.

On a cliff, in the fog there stands

An open door.

Alone I stand, away from all

There is a decision to be made

I could stand tall or I could fall

And allow the memories to fade.

My face pale from sickness, from sadness

I look into that door, so close to escape

These memories, self made madness

To make my own fate.

Is it worth it, to change who I am

Just to never feel this pain again?

Is it worth it, to destroy this foundation where I stand

To make these memories end?

I look back over my shoulder to see

Those dear loved ones staring at me.

I could change it all, change who I am

I can make it end, I know I can.

I could say goodbye to it all

I could give up, I could fall.

But there they stand never giving up on me

Having faith in me.

I cannot escape, I cannot fail them

No matter how easy it'd be to fall again.

I close that door

Like I've done before

And I wake up with the fog gone,

The sun shining bright

I live a new song,

With in a new light.

Crescent Moon, if I interpret your poem right, you are choosing to stand tall and learn, not so much to change, but to be the best you that you can be. So many blessings to you on this journey. I wish you all the best,

I can relate to this and you present this situation so well in your poem about a dream. Your words "These memories, self made madness" are pivotal to your message. Self doubt and pondering on past bad memories can lead to madness. Your poem is very wise and is encouraging for anyone living with self doubt. Well done, all my votes to you:)
