a midnight dream

my self
 sometimes is found
in the depths
of
a midnight dream
it
swirls above me
in the twilight
of
my darkness
it
comforts me
in a mass
of
drowsy energy
it
challenges me
to
awake from my own
enforced denial
it
screams at me
 to take the path
I really desire
it
quitely whispers
in
my mind
do
not be
afraid
it
softly nuzzles
me
to
be brave
do
 not fear defeat

it
 calls to me
as i wake

only fools are
afraid of failure

it
yells at
me

when
my mind
turns back on

in
failure there is
knowledge

as
i rise
my foggy mind

says to me

i
know there
was a midnight
dream

that
just went by

that
i
cannot remember

and
i
reply

nor do i

the self takes one on in many ways- and appears to oneself as a guiding spirit. I believe that there is indeed a spirit that takes us through our lifespan, much like a parent...
