From the Pocket of a Dream

*Brave Enough*

Poisoned by poetry, that is what is going on.
Unable to understand the reality
because of the years spent behind the curtains of solitude
surrounded with the silence.
The heart shut for feelings
so hard to be opened again.
terrified for being hurt one more time.
The poison of the words flows inside the veins
That is all, there is nothing else to expect
or hope for.
An utopia of wishes and promises,
the blindness for time.
My soul
cursed with this passionate longing for the answer,
for the truth,
it can not be in peace,
not any longer.
I am brave enough, I need it now
to be able to go on and fight
or let go forever
So hit me,
as my life has just done.
Right between the eyes.

    This is powerful.
    We are all brave enough when we have to be.
    There is something about this poem that seems charged by true emotion.

    Are we Brave enough to stand alone, to dare to think outside that which we have been taught? Are we brave enough to see the lies and to tell the truth, no matter how it may affect another? Are we Brave enough to voice our Feelings that we have kept locked so long within, And are we Brave enough to stop doubting ourselves.. Are we Brave enough to Let Go… and let life be.. what ever the consequences?
    Or can we be Brave and shout out to all that would listen.. Using the words of Poetry to heal the poison of the world of Words that are faceless and empty of emotion.. We can be Brave.. and Fight Back for that which we Feel is right, and Be Brave to fight for that which we love.. And Be Brave to follow our Hearts, and when we are Brave enough.. We will have completed all that we came to accomplish.. Love Dreamwalker x
