Life is not a Dress Rehearsal…
The essence of descent into life takes root in childhood.
Without choice the journey in due course will end; many
times in sorrow. The caretakers of our existence bestow
the gift of direction upon our tomorrows.
Life is a hierarchy from which expectations sprouts hope.
It reaches beyond the core of our beginning. Beyond the
reach of those from which we descend.
The perception of childhood can be deceived. Living within
the shelter of acceptance in a world filled with make believe.
It is the epoch of adolescence that is difficult to endure.
Castles in the sky built upon the sands of childhood falls into
an ocean of doubt as we sail toward a world that is no longer
innocent and pure.
Youth passes, living only in the yesterdays of our minds. Life
becomes complicated and the visions of early days suddenly
As adults, we convince ourselves that we are no longer allowed
to dream. We find that life can sometimes be unkind.
We must learn if what we are taught is true, one finds after they
have walked the crest of mountains. Waned in the valleys of
discontent that the years one has are few.
If life is not what you wanted and you believe the world is not within
your reach. It is time to follow your own path, with you in control of
how your journey will end. Life is not a dress rehearsal… maybe it
is time to return to the visions of childhood, remember your dreams
of yesterday; start living again.
