Hand-Me-Down Dreams

I take a deep breath

Connect to all who’ve been before

Feel my mother’s mother’s heartbeat in mine

What I yearn for

I don’t always understand

Whose dreams am I living

Are they of the present or the past

Inspired by The Daily Post: present

  1. I wonder if too many of us are living the dreams that parents and others instilled in us. I wonder if my resentment of it spoils the life I am living. I wonder if I could put them all behind me.
