An Out Worldly Dream - Poem by Ros Venn
A being cane to me in a dream one night,
It took the form of a baby with the voice of John Hurt,
It said that It took that form in order for me to comprehend It,
It had an out worldly presence.
I asked it, if it was God, for I was atheist,
It said "No and Yes", It said it was the creator of all things,
It said that It didn't like any of the representations of It in earthly religions,
Because these representations were made by man presuming It's existence.
I asked It the one question I feared most,
I said, "Is there life after death? "
It said "No"
Upon hearing this I was deeply upset.
It sensed that I was in distress,
It said "Fear not, for it gives you all the more reason to treasure life"
I sensed no malice in It's words,
When I was upset It was troubled and upset.
I cannot guarantee the authenticity of this beings words,
For it was only a dream.
However it felt very real,
But all dreams do.
