Dreams

dreams lead into dreams

let your conscious fly away

as the subconscious governs the night

succumb to Morpheus

let him be your guide

as you venture ever further

to reach an understanding

when you wake

and try to remember

has this been your life

that when you close your eyes

you are seeking surrender

in dreams

when the sun fades

when the sun fades

signals the end of day

night makes an appearance

the shapes of the clouds disappear

replaced by the stars

the light of the moon across the sky

tells of stories of the sun

as the trees sway in the breeze

the animals come out to hunt

their shadows dancing across the ground

pursuing the right to dominate the nightlife 

Raised by Wolves

take shelter from the gathering storm

we wait for it to pass

but we know in our hearts

fear prevails

as our surroundings darken

a path is found within

to lead us away to safety

what remains 

cannot be unbroken

like a child

fragile to begin with

then as strength returns

so shall we find in ourselves

the depth of courage

against disparity 

and awaken a truth

a burden of which we carry
