A Dream Not Yet Shattered

Lonely girl sitting on pier with ball of glowing light in hand

Just scratching along the surface
We never get where we’re going
We have to dig a little deeper

Down beneath the superficial
Below the false togetherness
The organized and pristine façade
Find the true depth
The real pain and hidden tears

Some days, we walk through the valley
Others we’re high on the mountain
Such is life, with its dips and turns
But we never stop moving forward

We take rests along the way
Never so long that we lose the way altogether
Just long enough to drink the cool water
Rejuvenate, appreciate

Caress the cheek of the child in our arms
This being birthed into a new light
A dream not yet shattered
A hope still promised to the world
