Waltz of the Forgotten
[a.n.] Another one! MUAHAHA! I'm on a roll!!! (Watch, this'll be the last poem I post before some REAL stories are made.) Yes, my lovelees, more KH poetry! 'Cause, y'know, Kingdom Hearts and poetry were just made to be together, ne? Now this one should be a no-brainer as to who it's about. -grin- [araclyzm]
In a realm of faerie dreams,
A world of adventures and play,
There are such things as hope and faith
But you must be here to stay.
Three children dreamed of a place like this
And one day set sail to see
If perhaps the world they'd always loved
Had finally come to be.
For many years they traveled,
Meeting others on the way,
Visiting places they'd never seen,
But their dreams began to stray.
Children no longer, they wanted to stop
And return to their original home.
But their dreams had not forgotten them,
And would soon make themselves known.
As the 'children' turned back to return,
A bright light stopped their path.
The ocean became a horror,
And was forced to demonstrate its wrath.
Their dreams fought against them
And finally won victory
The children found themselves in the world
They'd forgotten but had wished to see.
They were given a forgotten chance
To live again as the children they'd been
But to stay in their world of dreams and hope
Was as great as any sin.
They did not know what to choose,
And their time was running short.
Then the wisest of the group of three
Whispered so as not to be caught.
"Perhaps we've always dreamed of this
But we cannot stay in this place.
We're real; it's not; so we must believe,
Because time is still a race."
She continued: "Our times may have been hard,
But reality is our true home.
And if we want to truly live,
We must not allow our dreams to roam."
Strengthened by these wise words,
The three tried to break free.
But dreams are not meant to be forgotten,
And would never let this truth be.
But sooner or later, time would stop
For both the worlds whence they came.
Though one day darkness shown through the light
And made them stop this game.
Perhaps it was the power of love
Or the courage that they knew.
But somehow they broke through that world
And started their lives anew.
However one shred of their person
Would never forget their dreams
Because if forgotten, dreams would turn
As black as the world so deems.
So listen to this moral
And heed it all you know:
Never let go of your dreams,
No matter how old you grow.
