No, ... nobody tells you
by Nika McGuin
that it can make every day
feel as slow as a grain of sand
waiting to drop into the bottom
of the world's biggest hour glass
For a person who never had
ambition or goals, other than
the most basic human securities,
to suddenly have a dream
so big, that it engulfs your entire
being? , so big it feels as if
your heart, will be crushed
under it's heavy boots?
Such a feeling can only be described
as the sweetest torture
Although suffocating, if stopped?
it would surely stomp the breath
from your tiny lungs...
a dream this size, is like a giant
clinging to your back, like a parasite,
for dear life... but if you shake
him off, his fall will kill you...
your life crumpled like paper
under his weight
No, it's more like a tiny snowball
at the head of a towering hill
that - when pushed, by the slightest wind -
takes off! & is suddenly unstoppable,
endlessly rolling onward, growing larger by the day
until it becomes the ferocious abominable snowman
who chases you through the alps of life
To put it simply...
a dream this big is like a leech
draining the life out of you
yet keeping you hanging on
leading you where?
you don't know...
until you either succeed or
it all falls through
you cling to it
much as it clings
