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.
