Open your wings and close your eyes!

A poem I wrote on the 23rd of April 2008


Sometimes I love dreaming when I’m alone at night

Someone once told me that theater is life


“Just sit back, feel how it is to be and enjoy the ride”

But I couldn’t, I had left my dream go by


Whatever you’re doing now is just another brick in the wall

But don’t build it too fast, or it might fall


“Keep your eyes open and you will see

And listen to others, including me”


The dreams we make need our help to become true

You see, there not just dreams, they need effort too.


Open your wings and close your eyes

Fly up high and enjoy the ride

Let the wind just blow you away

Feel how it is to be free and find your way


Stay up in the sky until the stars come out

Shoot for the moon and you’ll be among them I have no doubt.


Look at your life and how you would want it to be

Don’t ever ask for more than you need.


Just kill your thirst with the ‘less’ you get

You never know what life is going to bring you next


Open your wings and close your eyes

Feel how it is to fly up high

Don’t think that it just went by

Close your eyes and enjoy the ride!!!

      Hi Danast,

      Thank you very much. I am the same, I truly love affecting others in a positive way with my work, and I have always been like that. Even as a child I couldn't stand seeing sad people, I would always try to make them smile. I am so happy that my hubs have made you smile :) and I truly appreciate your support.

      Have a lovely day my friend,

      Chris

      Great poem!! This sounds like me! I'm a huge dreamer, and my mind takes me on some of the wildest and craziest rides, especially at night. Thank you for your wonderful thoughts that you transfer into words that hit at the heart!

      I am so happy that through my hub you have been inspired to begin writing poetry again :) To be honest I wanted to begin posting my poems on HubPages for a while now however, I only found the courage to do so a few days ago. But I am very glad that I did because all the feedback I have received has been so positive and encouraging.

      Thank you so much for your comments and votes BNadyn,

      I wish you all the best with your poems and I will be really looking forward to reading them!

      I love reading poetry and haven't read any in a long time. I haven't wrote one personally for awhile, either until last week for my son's birthday. It never crossed my mind to post any here on HP but reading this inspired me to start writing and reading more poetry again. Voted up, thanks for sharing!

      Hi Blossom,

      I had no idea it was Shakespeare Day when I was writing this :) To be honest the reason I mention theater in my poem is because theater was the dream i had left behind. You see I wanted to pursue a career within theater however due to certain reasons I could not.

      Thank you for your comments.

      I don't know why, but when I started reading it and you said,

      "Open your wings and close your eyes

      Fly up high and enjoy the ride

      Let the wind just blow you away

      Feel how it is to be free and find your way."

      It made me start crying. This is something I needed to read. Thank you for sharing this with us. It was truly amazing and inspiring. Everyone vote up!
