A Dream


Not a pretty picture, but a very pretty fish.

I once had a dream.
A dream where I was so frustrated at life I wanted to escape.
Walking along the river's edge I saw the fish swimming by.
I wanted to swim with the fish for awhile and leave life's worries behind.
I dreamt I swam with the fish for a year.
When I returned I had to decide whether I would stay with the fish
permanently or return to my life.
Life has it's ups and its downs and sometimes
can be very scary, sad, and happy too.
What would your choice be?

In the dream I chose to stay with my life,
not always easy; but it is mine to live.
I dream dreams of a better world, but
take life each day as it comes.
