Once upon a time I fell asleep, I slept through time and space and dreamed dull memories of a life that should of not have been. I slept through my childhood and into adolescents and my dreams were filled with fear and shame of the shell a of a person I cloaked myself in he was a shadow of something better underneath. In these times I dreamed of many things and many failures and brief moments of smiles and a door that was bolted and sealed, and yet I slept on. I began to dream into adulthood , I dreamt of for away places from my home and a miserable man dressed in green and brown lost in his own direction and in conflict with himself and the world around him and ignoring truth about who he was and yet the dream continued and the man came home and found that he was still lost in his own identity and direction. He tried many things to find his way but never would he reach for the door he long ago bared are chained and labeled “DO NOT OPEN” and yet I dreamed on… The seasons passed from summer to winter and summer again and in that dream the man fell in love and forgot the door and for a moment he was at peace and in that peace he found a family of his own, but he felt empty and dull and still lost. I dreamt the man began to remember the door, and he began a journey to find answers as to what was behind it and to what was his purpose. I dreamt He found sages and wise people and gained wisdom and most of all he found a key. I dreamed that the man began to face a fear a fear of the door and what was behind it but he knew he must face it and he tore down the barricades that were before the door and with shaky hands full of fear pulled out the key and reached for the door and unlocked it………. I woke up.
