Wake My Dreams - Poem by Jessica Millsaps

In this life,
We get a chance
A chance for something new
Something only we understand

Our dreams suddenly seem so close
And we hold on tight to what is leaving
And follow the path that we create
For ourselves, yet little trod upon
The way we used to be

In our hearts we understand
What we must do to reach this land
This land where all our dreams
Suddenly become reality

We see a potential for trouble
And we turn our backs and hide
When we need to come out head strong
And change to right from wrong

Our dreams are real, if you'll let them be
If you hold them close, and aim for this reality
So dream on and open up
To wake my dreams and yours
