Dream with Eyes Wide Open



Today, dream with eyes wide open.  

Let go of soil where you first sprouted,  

Forget reminders

Of a rocky start.

Ignore whispers filled with condemnation

Floating in the breeze,

Memories of guilt and regret,

Warped versions of who you really are.


Instead, accept what was, is, and will always be,  

Before life was breathed into you,

Before time was measured,  

Before dark ignored light.


Accept imperfections,

Then stretch for the sun.

Push past self-doubt,

Let what-ifs fall away;

For they sap strength

Turning worth into worthlessness,

Belief into unbelief,

Strength into sorrow.


If thirsty for hope, stop drinking brow sweat.

Just surrender.


Then lift your eyes, sprout wings, and

Fly over walls

That once overshadowed, and

Plant yourself in fertile soil.

Once there,

Look up and dream with eyes wide open.

Drink in what you have always known –

You matter,

You are perfect,

You are loved.
