keep your fingers crossed
your heart open
your vision willing
your dreams real

keep your smile secret
your heart willing
your vision sure
your dreams strong

keep your eyes dry
your heart strong
your vision unblurred
your dreams from fleeting

@@@

keep your head up
your heart patched up
your vision realistic
your dreams as dreams

 

realization

I await a realization…
one that has been a long time coming

a long time waiting
to be seen for real.

I await a realization…
to slacken surprised mouths
to crease optimistic brows
and quiet delighted eyes
and see the dreams of wonder mist out.

I await a realization…
one where encounters prove as stories
and fame, all-told seeks to be untold
to be re-told
as nothing shy of the simple truth :

an imperfect realization.
