we are all born with a divine fire in us. our effort should be to give wings to this fire.


The golden meadow

a place of hope

I am free

to roam and 

be me

I sing the song

of hope and peace

while I run and play

in the golden meadow 

that protects me

I am always happy

and I am free

in the golden meadow that loves me

with it's many wild animals

yet non harm me

and the perfect warmth

that shelters me

with the perfect world

yet so mesmerising

and yet

after I leave 

I am no longer

in the perfect world

that awaited me

Its cruel and cold

with savage beasts

so I run back to the golden meadow

and its perfect beauty

and it always welcomes me 


The author's comments:

Everyone runs from their fears and pain. I wrote this about a figurative escape. Where the girl escapes the cruel world and enters the more perfect world and every time she leaves the meadow, she can't stay in the cruel world and so she goes back into the meadow. This is for those who have felt that they need an escape and they have related to this poem in any way.

"Let the disappointments pass
Let the laughter fill your glass
Let your illusions last until they shatter.
Whatever you might hope to find
Among the thoughts that crowd your mind
There won't be many that ever really matter.
But take good care of your mother
And remember to be kind
When the pain of another will serve you to remind."
--Jackson Browne

I love this poem! Keep up the good work.
