Ponder and Dream
by:Raven Shadowborne © 1998

These thoughts that I ponder
as I sit and dream
hopes for the future
regret for past deeds
understanding of reasons
logical deduction
predictions for the morrow
emotional needs
no conclusions forthcoming
no set path for my feet
yet to just sit here
ponder and dream
free of my shackles
free from hate pain and greed
released of all guilt and shame
soaring beyond my body's limitations
grasping a brass ring
to attain future growth
as once more I sit
to ponder and dream
