Dream's Doorway

They say a poem's not really a poem until you share it with someone else. And that's what this place is all about.

There it is . . .

The portal;

The doorway to beauty . . .

And mystery.

And here I stand,

Held back by my own fear.

I want to walk;

To enter there,

But quicksand

Holds me here.

So I look in and dream . . .

Keep your face to the sunshine and you cannot see the shadows.

I really like this one, may you and I and all who feel this holding back fear lose it in the awesomness of life , love and God.

Wisdom tells me I am nothing.
Love tells me I am everything.
And between the two, my life flows.

So true, even today.
Be brave and dream. Be courageous and follow the dream . Be bold and never look back.

An enjoyable piece; it's sad that many people are still held back by their fears, given the times in which we live; you captured this thought marvelously; well done.

Dear Barbie,

so true!
sometimes we are scared to leave our comfort zone towards something new. The first step is always hard, but don't let our fears held us back, dream and reach it! :)

you've written it beautifully!
