The Dreamcatcher

Written by: Ayman Peeroo

It forbids nightmare
and welcomes dreams.
It shields your sleep,
wraps around you,
like a protective gear,
like a blanket; soft and warm.
But why bother, i wonder.
Life is about the unexpected.
Life comes,
with its full density of good and bad.
One of the ultimate truths, it is.
Why run away?
when you know you cannot escape.
Open your self; 
your mind and soul,
and feel whatever life has to offer;
the hugs and the bruises,
the light and the darkness,
the smooth and the rough,
euphoria and agony.
Only then,
you have lived fully.
