Beating the Screams Out of My Dreams

Beating the screams

Out of my dreams,

Destroying the vision of what I have been


Time to buck this trend.
Where am I going, where will this lead?
No idea, but going to make this world bleed


Not in a violent way,

but adding colour to my world of grey.

Time keeps ticking on, as I re-create myself;

Taking things I ignored off of the shelf.
Building speed like a grain of sand
Picking up things that I rejected off-hand,
as being implausible or simply laughable.

Instead, all of these thoughts, hopes, and fantasies,
That I believed to simply be fallacies…
Hold more truth inside than a jaded bride.


Come to find out, I am all of the things that I rejected

and ignoring them simply left me feeling dejected,
While embracing the confusing and unknown
brought the light in and gave me dominion upon my new throne.
