note to self – on dreams

speak the dreams that
we were not born
daring to dream
but which are
our birthright
embedded in our
ancestries

our DNA is familiar
with long journeys
far from home,
learning to flourish
wherever we might land,
accustomed to building
with whatever we
material can be found

it is time
to reach a little
further,
use the strength
our legs
inherited,
to stretch
our realms of
possibility.
