Weeping Willow

Arbor Town

Walking along in a mist
A small town appeared out
of nowhere
Through the old misty fog
Lovely homes on one side while
the sea was just opposite the cliffs

Beautiful sea
As I smelled the salt air
Flowing through the breeze

Walking down the street humming
silently to myself
Enjoying the ocean air
Thinking to myself this is where I've always wanted
to be
My heart racing within as I take the scenery
all in
Beautiful place within a beautiful dream

Taking in moments
All my pain away

As I slowly drift into the sea
Being held within the waves
I feel the froth from the ocean air
As I sink deeper into the sea

I feel more alive than ever before

As the Ocean carries me beyond
into her depths of beauty
Resting there forever

Waking up to realize it was just a dream
and I was still within my place
Surrounded by walls.

    Beauty lies in one's eyes
    Challenges might pull you down at times
    Only for resilience to bloom
    Life is never a failure
    Only a board to conduct experiment
    Later known as trial and error
    Until you make it till there
    Life always offer hope.

    Full of pain and downfall. But still a good one ready to express the dreams.

    It's nice to dream and escape for a while, but we all must face reality sooner or later.
