My Space is Small

Updated on January 10, 2012

My Dreams are Big

Source

The walls close in

stuff piled high

boxes in the corner

every space occupied

by a piece of me

of where I’ve been

what I’ve seen

who I am.


This corner of mine

is more than a place

it’s a world as I please

away from judgment

and harsh words.


Yes, the space is much too tiny

overcrowded with my life

stuffed to the brim

of everything I own,

little of what I owe ~

it isn’t very much at all.


So much goes on

within these walls

love and heartache

joy and sadness

knowledge and confusion,

always to repeat and go on.


Words are written

to share beyond,

provide comfort and salvation

for me and you.


A bonding of woman and animal

grows so strong

fills up the rooms

with love

never lonely.


Success and failures

disappointments and triumphs

knowledge gained

all hang in the air

create an atmosphere

of hope and possibility.


My space is small,

yet reaches so far.

My dreams go beyond

flow right through these walls

down the streets

around the corner

blanket all my steps.
