XL Dreams



The open mind flies beyond horizons,
borders are crossed on wings of thought,
with widely stretched shores to land on,
freedom is found where it’s sought.

While actual life is full of restrictions,
dreams are not bothered by any dismay,
confronted with halting inflictions,
thousands of routes may then array.

Unlimited is the dream director
in how the story may take its course.
In time nor place bound by a vector,
love of life is the deciding force.

    Dreams, indeed, are free of barriers. One may travel anywhere in them.
    It simply shows the power of one's unconscious mind.
