“Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world.” – Harriet Tubman

Dreams

When my head lightly touches the pillow
and my eyelids are too heavy to drag across my eyeballs,
the weight of the world nestles into my chest
until I can manage to jump free in a violent spasm.

After my body seizes
I begin to dream dreams
that I could only dream.
Dreams that you could only dream to dream.

While you may be conquering the world in your way
I will conquer the world in the only way.

I will dream these dreams that I dream
and it will leave me with a feeling of rejuvenation.

When you dream the dreams that you dream
it leaves you with a feeling of extirpation.

You have this constant feeling of

dread
and
fear

deep inside of you.

It’s unfounded, really.

I have this constant feeling of

hope
and
apathy

somewhere inside of me.

And that is why I dream the dreams that I dream.
The weight of the world is not that heavy to me.
It can fit onto my chest and barely jostle my heavy eyelids
as I lay my heavy head onto my pillow.
