Nanobri suggested this.You know what happens when you dream of falling? Sometimes you wake up. Sometimes the fall kills you.
And sometimes, when you fall, you fly."

This was really hard. This is the best I could do. Forgive me. It's pretty lame.


In the time of your alter universe
when you engage with the men of the sand
you cannot depend on his arms
to catch you before you land

If you think you are going to die
you will die before you awake
You'll land hard on the ground in a heap
and pray your soul he will take

If you think that you'll awake when you fall
it'll be exactly as you said
then instead of dead in a heap
you'll awaken and continue to dread

But if you know that you will take flight
when you fall in depths of the slumber
You will fly home to the light and the love
and live free in the land of the thunder

Aww, I'm sorry mine was tricky. I just really like the quote. To me it's kind of about embracing the dream, and the magic that can happen if you play outside the box.

falling
in these dreams.
Wondering if upon waking
I might find me.
Careful now see,
I must tread slowly
and find a beauty
that I once thought
did not belong to me.
This falling might
be my death,
but surely my inner strength
will give my wings
the needed breath...
to fly.

Well Breeze,this is what came to mind when I read this post.
