Still I dream

by Yakari Gabriel   Jan 16, 2011

When the coldness
that comes along with emptiness
steal the warmth I feel

still I dream

though my life
is a constant delirium
and I no longer know;
what to say,
what to do,
who to be.

still I dream

for my nights are calm
my spirits are full of hope
despite all struggles

I can close my eyes

-still I dream-

    Yaki, in your dreams you can be anything you want to be, you are free of struggles, free of the restraints that daily life has, you are not judged, or excluded, you are you, and you can be whatever you dare dream.
    a beautifully simple piece, such an inspirational write.
