The Far Side

The far side of my dreams
Shows a woman reconciled

Her former self acknowledged
Her present self-preserved

Each moment of inner clarity
Used as sustainability

Each moment of doubt and hopelessness
Discarded along with the other nonsense

She’s not the me sometimes in nightmares
Giving into all of her fears
Fighting against an invisible foe
That screams within her ears

She’s not the one that eats her love
Then rejects it like a bad transplant

She’s not the one that feels incapable
Of meeting all of her demands

She’s not the one that feels unwanted
Questioning everyone’s true motives

She’s not the one that cries in silence
Mourning the latest inner betrayal

She worked through years of tedium
And falling flat upon her face
Picking herself up from the dust
Being reborn over and again

Rising out of the ashes
To become the woman I will be

On the far side of my dreams
