A poem about following your dreams regardless the harsh reality we all have to face.

Walking over the fields of dark forgotten pasts

Feeling the wind blow through my hair

Chilling my bones

Keeping my body in a cold wave

Desperation filling my body with each step I take

Making me lust for the times where the sun shines

Where my smile has returned from the shadows

I can feel you embracing me

When my eyes are closed from the darkness of the world

I can see only the happiness and sun I wish for

But reality cannot escape the soul

My eyes open upon it every day

And every day

A piece of my soul shatters and falls away into an

Unknown universe

Dreams fill me with the hope of a better place to be

Evolving into reality when I lose myself into my toxic plans

Where all I want to be and do

Lives as strongly as a beating heart

Gasping, I open my eyes when feeling the rain upon my skin

Clouds hover above me and let their contents fall upon earth

My tears mix with the rain

A deep power within me fights to break free

but I am frozen to the ground

The wind blows

Rain falls

I am frozen within nature

I breathe in the fresh air from the innocence

Of childhood

It brings me back alive

Cuts through the strings holding on to me

In one breath I am freed and I run

Escaping my past and running to the future

Which is clouded and mysterious

But I keep running

With

Every step

Every breath

Every blink

I come closer to touching Paradise
