Dream Poem

My dreams help me go on with life.


© Katherine Mclaughlin
The day seems good until you wake up.
The world seems welcoming until you enter it.
When the morning comes nothing seems good
the moment my eyes open and until they are shut
I feel like death would be better, safer, and more peaceful.
But the moment my eyes are closed dreams come and take me.
The dream of peace and happiness, the warmth and love.
It may only last a moment but it gives me strength
Strength for the day to come
No matter what it be, a nightmare or a fantasy
It seems better then life.
Friends in my dreams never leave or change
Time never passes to fast or to slow
You are never forgotten or hated
Nothing seems better and you start to feel happy.
Then the sun comes up and your brought back,
back to the truth of the world.
The pain and sadness,
The hate and fear of life washes over you
and you wish you wouldn't have open your eyes.
You want to fall back into your welcoming sleep
Where nothing goes wrong and you are always loved.

  • Hang in there, I also share your pain of life where all seems to go wrong and the pain and emotions just keep growing. But it can all change, I know you probably hear this a lot but all you gotta do is get into life, Grab it by the balls and do stuff you would never do before, like martial art classes or sports or exploring on your own. Don't close your world just yet there is still so much to do even if your out of your teen years. Live on Sister.

  • Yeah you are all right. It's the truth, I wish to die now, not tomorrow now. Sometimes my dreams make me feel better but when I wake up I know that I can't make my life nice and peaceful. I am always sad, alone actually. I don't have more to say, only when you will look to my eyes you will see how much I am a sad girl .
