Spiraling through dreams, hurricanes of mind
searching for something that you cannot find.
In wistful tornadoes a wish is blown
over the rainbow, you find yourself thrown.
Living in colour avenging the grey
in wonder wayfarer finding your way
through perils and sadness your journey starts
hoping you’ll find the home of your heart.
With each step you take your shoes glitter red
each sparkle a mirror of light in your head.
Your pace small in stature, but huge in stride.
Which way you go is for you to decide.
Melodramatic your faith in your charm.
Conscience will guide you, protect you from harm.
Tempted by fields of malevolent guise
perfumed to trick but awakened you’re wise.
Your path is golden, tenacious your soul
to battle your demons you have control.
In cinematic musical aplomb
you start to realize how far you have come.
Resolute not to stray in your motion
you find there is no magic or potion.
The magician you seek lives in your thoughts
you have the answers to all you have sought.
Prowess unleashes the lion and you
find courage and roar pride in your truth.
Your head wasn’t filled with bales of straw
intelligent, wise of that you are sure.
Your heart not leaden with grief but with love
you come through stronger the journey’s been rough.
The home of your heart is where your love lies
no grasses greener and no bluest skies.

Down The Rabbit Hole
“Down the Rabbit Hole” is a collective work of writings from poets who like you, live their lives inundated with the challenges and demands of everyday life. They have unlocked the door to boundaries we all make for ourselves and turned those boundaries into fantastic, beautiful worlds to both help ease the boredom and perhaps spark the imagination.
