The Mystery of Dreams

I gave everything I had

to follow my dreams

until I had nothing left to give

those stupid dreams that didn't seem to

want me anyway,

and I was sad about that for a long time

until I realized that even my biggest dreams

were too small for me to live.

And now every moment I live in this mystery

feels like the most incredible gift,

which makes me wonder if

the greatest parts of our dreams

are not schemed but revealed with every step

like something beautiful that's been waiting for us

to reach a little farther into what we could not yet see.
