In Dreams

Walking through your dreams

You see the path ahead

A moment to catch your breath

As you ponder the next step

The path is no longer true

But a ladder leading on, higher

In front of you


Its destination is fog bound

There is no trace

Just the rungs, bending and turning

Like the snake that wants to trip you up

Sending you back to who knows where

You continue to stare

And prepare to take that first step


Bravely, one foot then the next

But you don’t get far

As the ladder creaks, a rung breaks

You awake from the jolt of the fall

And questioning what it means

Clinging to the dream

You look inward for answers…
