I am somewhere else
Dreaming of this situation
I have to be sleeping
Fitfully and fearfully
I can control my dreams
I have to change this
To be better and more
Bestow upon myself powers
Flight and insight
Foreshadowing and afterglow
Strength and clarity
Resolve and absolution
Forgiveness and ascendancy
I struggle to stay asleep
So I can stay in control
Under all these covers
I have powers unimaginable
But the light of day awakens me
I become listless and edgy
I know that I can’t do much
Only all I am able
Would it be so hard
To reach out and make this life
And the dream I had
The same?
