Finding An Essence

Life can make extreme sense
scattered in the field of dreams,
though a mind is shackled by bone
and blood imprisons a lonely heart,
a soul is fresh, crazy, alive, but never held.
Smell freedom in each new day,
hold a conversation with your sky
and let this magic fill us.
Crave imagination in every thought
and mingled with the dreams,
a cold fire will burn us.
Search this world for meaning,
it’s essence is easily revealed
and simplicity itself will mend us.
Reach out a praying hand
and touch another’s sorrow,
then peace has finally found us.
