Poetry Wednesday

I Am

I was a dreamer, dreaming dreams of lives I would never live. 

I was a lover, loving love I would never know.

I was a child looking to a future that was not set.

I was a stone hoping to be a river.

I am…

I am a dreamer touching the dream with burnt fingers.

I am a lover cautiously opening to love.

I am standing with crossed fingers at the door of life.

I am a stone floating in a river.

I am a journey on a broken road.

I am…

Often when we look back on our lives, we either have regret about the past or feel like we have failed to achieve what we expected to by this point. “I am” is a poem about finding the middle ground and realizing that just because the journey isn’t what we expected, doesn’t mean it’s over.
