~Hopes and Dreams~

Updated on August 7, 2017

~Prologue~

When life passes us by...


Source

~A Journey to Self~

Not young anymore

nor am I old

just somewhere in between.

Its like life pass me by

swallowing up my dreams.

All my hopes now fantasy's

bare the scars of a symphony,

once embraced by melodies

now all it does is taunt and flee

dragging me deeper into eternity,

fumbling with my emotions like sand brushing against the ocean, bottled by
time and space in a place
only God could grace.

How can I hide beneath the somber of gravel that buries my memories, do I fight
the hunger and the rage t
hat bemoans and wails in hidden agony,

always contrite yet oblique, beckoning, longing to be free. struggling to rid itself
of this wounded silhouette that
dwells within the depth of me.

Shall I scream hallelujah I'm somewhere in between, be happy for the memories that somehow chasten me, or is life just a paradox with no beginning no end,

just a point in time to embellish or revel on what could have been.

Bartering on time, no particular chime, unsung melodies to unwind.

I sometimes ponder on that emotion wallowing in its stream,
clinging boundlessly to regain my hopes and dreams.

      Beautifully expressed....the tug of war of our souls. Trying to hold onto to our youth, while learning to embrace the journey of getting older. Enjoy the moment, live each day to the fullest!! Peace.
