365 Poems/71 Awake to life (Rough First Draft)
Awake to life
Don’t daydream within boundaries.
Daydream like you are smiling in the fast lane,
riding a Harley Davidson with the lights off.
Daydream like you have ventured out
into the black night with no torchlight,
and only an owl and the fox’s bark
to guide you through the woods.
Daydream like you are chaos.
Daydream, like you are able to sleep
in a bed of nettles.
Your escapism hasn’t been stolen. It’s here.
You need to toss it on its back,
and fall in love with it again.
Only when you warm it’s cold history
will it bloom and grow.
Hush hush, it’s perfect.
Can you hear the wolves now?
They’re howling because you told them to.
