Dreaming

when you were young
did you dream you could fly
did you dream you could fly
like an eagle
going up
in great circles
touching the sky
looking down
could you see
the whole world
did you fly
like an eagle
in your dreams

when you were young
did you dream you could run
did you dream you could run
like a wolf
did you run
like a wolf
on the hunt
or did you run really fast
like a demon
like a demon
fleeing the pits of hell
having at times to jump
deep flaming chasms
echoing screams
did you run
jump
or fly
in your dreams.

Fly, run or jump... man in one moment of his life did dream of such sorts for man is a dreamer. Good write.
