Echos of the Future

Once, lying on the grass

she looked up, into other worlds, wondering,

“what if someone took control of my mind? who would know? i would not be here to tell them!”

a nap commenced.

a girl awakens on the lawn, wondering,

“what did I just dream about?”

could you hear the echo of a life past,

a life more beautiful than this?

could you hear a melody,

sung in words long forgotten by our ears?

I look deep into my heart,

trying to remember love

the way it used to be

when I was who

I was supposed to be.

do you understand?
