Sometimes walking in faith and believing has the world telling you that you aren't normal... What is normal?

I’ve been bumbling in dreamland

Tottering along

Loving the signs and symbols

Absorbing all the songs.

 

There’s always extra meaning,

In every event,

Every conversation, every sunset.

Expectation! Hope is never spent.

 

There’s a poem for every occasion

Filtering love complete

With gorgeous lines and metaphors

To the rhythm of: Heart Beat.

 

The beauty of my imagination,

My quiet space;

Decorated with light and love,

Overflowing faith, hope and grace.

 

Now the real world is yelling:

“Leave your escape.

You can’t live there forever you know!

Take tablets for the heartache.”

 

I put the tablet back in its box;

Nice and slow;

I’m just not ready yet,

To let the love go.

 

And the world whispers,

Softly in my ear:

“Why are you torturing yourself?

You’re worth so much more my dear.”
