Walking on Bones
Moving through our day to day
Walking on bones of dreams tossed away
Books left unwritten, houses unbuilt
Far lands unexplored, and blood spilt
We know not our path or destination
Yet, dream them up to pass the time
Till our real dream is shown
Our destination revealed
And our selves complete

Growing up is not only about getting older. In fact, age does not automatically translate to ‘grown up’. It’s also about finding yourself. The problem is, you’re a moving target. The real you is not always who you thought you were. It can change from one day to the next.
In truth: Who are today is not who will be tomorrow.
So, how can you achieve your dreams or even find them if you can’t even find yourself.
Our goals and dreams and aspirations change as we change. Our dreams are tossed away or lost and forgotten like sweatshirts. We can get new ones. Once in a while an old one happens to turn up in the back of the closet and can become a focus again. But most are left behind with our promises, intentions, and acquaintances.
Our life is a trail of debris.
