Don’t forget to dream
when dark days and hard-times
loom large before you
and you feel your soul has
fallen asleep.
Look beyond-
the veil of hazy thoughts,
for I see you dressed in colours of hope yet.
Bit by bit,
your layers are peeling away
and you are transforming from sensation to sensation.
It is almost accomplished.
Until then-
let the little things in life,
bring you joy.
