Dreams of a Teen
I am ready to go to sleep and dream of a day far away.
Where school is a mystery and homework is history.
Where chores are no more and I have free time galore!
A place where I can feel free and dance around in Jubilee!
I will dream of this place until dawn breaks, but what if before dawn my dream place is gone without a trace?
What if my dream turns sour and my dream life turns dour?
Will I find peace in this new realm or will chaos and discord become my new best friends?
Might I ever escape this endless night? Or will twilight's clutches hold tight?
My voice grows hoarse with all my remorse, and with dawn's cleansing light still not in sight, will twilight end my plight?
At last dawn's light touches mine eyes filled with fear! Twilight gives out a cry of defeat, yet pledges his victory will be sweet. With no time to ponder twilight's parting oath, I race to embrace the god of day's faith.
With thoughts of twilight well out of mind, I continue to dream of a happier time.
Where school was a mystery and homework history.
Where chores were no more and I had free time galore!
A place where I could feel free and dance around in jubilee!
All of a sudden, the wail of an alarm is heard throughout my world.
I wake with a jolt and find my vision dark. My eyes fly open and what do i behold?
My room of chaos and discord,
my widow shut tight to keep out the light,
and my body encased in sheets of ebony night.
With a start, I remember my fantasy world.
I remember twilight's parting words.
I remember the essay I forgot to write!
I remember my dream life.
I come to realize, not a second too late, that my dreams are not reality and twilight, the never ending night, is a reflection of my life.
Until the next night, when I am ready to go to sleep and dream of a day far away, I will fight this never ending twilight to strive for dawn's loving light.
Until I stop dreaming of a place,
where school is a mystery and homework is history,
where chores are no more and I have free time galore,
where I can feel free and dance around in jubilee,
I will never stop believing that I can dream.
