Freedom to Dream

"Expose yourself to your deepest fear; after that, fear has no power, and the fear of freedom shrinks and vanishes. You are free." ~ Jim Morrison

freedom is nipping at my heels
so close, it's outright intimate
i don't even have to commit

as fear surrounds, a dream reveals
itself, bits and pieces of life
friends mixed in with a little strife

longings weathered as the paint peels
time being a cruel caretaker
needing a miracle maker

so old, these cracked, collapsed ideals
so thin, surprising even me
need rose-colored glasses to see

is it how chasing a dream feels
exhilaratingly tangent
and yet a little circumvent
