Day Dream Versus Nightmare - Poem by Jennie Chester

I sit there in a room so frosty and unwelcoming.
My thoughts seem to take over me
As I daydream.
Suddenly I’m in a trance that is inescapable.

But I want to escape.
I need to escape.
I HAVE to escape.

Thinking of all the hate that surrounds me
In this cold, and unloving world.
One would think it merely unattainable to actually possess a passion so pure, and so caring -
That is love.

Where is the love?

My thoughts become a whirlwind in my head
And the hate that is around me also begins to spire out of control.

Where is the love?
It’s here; people just choose to close their eyes to it.

Let’s stop this nightmare.

Let your love shine through, from you soul,
Into the souls of others.
What’s stopping us?
Melt the frost that is abhorrence
And burn a flame of love – to shine.
