Only In My Dreams

In my dream
I floated among the clouds
I was numbered with the stars
I rose higher and higher
Above the sounds of the
City
Above the jealousy
The unkindness
The fears
The worries
The want to try to fit it
I rose above it all
And forgot it
Because there
Up in the sky
I found something worthwhile
A feeling resided there
Peace and hope
A chance to be something better
A place to rise above the world
And the faults of its people
Because
As I soared higher
My thoughts became clearer
And I saw
For once
A new light I'd never seen
And I felt that I had a way
To be something better
And I wasn't afraid to be myself

And then I woke up
I was no longer soaring, free
And wild
I was no longer fearless as I had been
Nor careless and free
Now my thoughts were focused on how to be someone else.
I could no longer soar and be myself.
No
Only in my dreams
