One Step From Dreams

One Step From Dreams
One Step From Dreams…the creative mind

New step, original thought…

Occupied with distraction life flies by,
but has an original thought ever pried open a mind,
ever challenged creativity to manifest in profusion,
to bypass delusion and seek a renewal
in unique and meaningful form?

Often life can be a sedentary infusion,
a known and safe illusion of living,
that in repetition holds a mind to slavery,
the dull and reoccurring breaths
that reveal nothing but time passing.

Undulations can be like weather,
changeable, but expected and accepted,
and offering no challenge for a calcifying brain,
just a train ride through a well known landscape,
eyes vacantly seeing nothing.

Without creative thought, we are locked in a cage,
a slave to our routines, our repetition,
and nothing evokes freedom,
just a dull accepted being that keeps us in stillness,
the safety of yesterday’s embrace.

One step beyond, is a new perspective,
thoughts untamed by time’s relentless passage,
when thought is an adjunct to new experience,
and creation the very core of life’s gift,
where beauty and profundity live,
one step from dreams.

    Beautiful thoughts, Tony. To break away from the mundane and take that one step beyond opens the mind to greater creativity and self-worth. To be uninhibited and listen to those untamed thoughts opens the door to “beauty and profundity”. Marvelous thoughts, great work.
