They Are Waiting (poem)

Updated on December 24, 2012

They open to a realm of what might be

We can’t believe is there within our sight

They’re calling out to us to hold them tight

What is this jealous doubt that makes us flee


What limits are the thoughts which they ignite

A make-believe that we can clearly see

What limits now our possibility

What limits call us back into the night


Those reasons sent to cloud our youthful eyes

Whose answer to our hopes is always no

While there within our hearts we hear their screams


They open to a realm that’s free of lies

Where our imagination’s free to flow

To flow amid the streams of all our dreams

      This is a deep and beautiful poem, my imagination is definitely stirred. Although I admire and appreciate poetry, creating it escapes me.

      That's the truth in everything: the only limits that there are is due to people not wanting to live outside the box...
