One Step Closer - Poem by Jessica Paige Davies

Sitting and thinking I wonder to myself,
How many people reach their dreams?
How may achieve their goals?
Or does it all end in screams?

I sit with my mind wandering,
My eyes glassy with thoughts,
Will I get my dream job?
Are dreams an illusion of sorts?

I guess I've been lucky,
That one in a million,
I'm finally on the road,
A step closer to a wild stallion.

I don't care how long it takes,
Even if I need to cross the desert plains,
I will ride the wind,
Down the twisting lanes.

I guess I'm a poet,
And I guess I'm a minstrel,
A person who tells stories on their travels,
If only life could be as simple.

    Dreams are one of life's crazy mysteries. Most people will never be able to fulfil any of their goals and desires. Having a impossible dream can't help. Dreams that occur when you go to sleep can be plain strange. (Well mine are) . I would suggest bard instead of person in the last stanza. Thanks for sharing (Report) Reply
