Imagination-Use it

Taking time to ponder on the thoughts
Of things you do not know
Letting your mind wonder
Allowing room to grow
Thinking beyond reason
Of what some may seem to be
Beyond an explanation
For anyone to see
If your thoughts can find it
There’s every chance it could be true
Even if it’s out of reach
In a place without a view
Never stop your mind from dreaming
About what others cannot see
You may just discover
Something that’s meant to be
Somewhere in the vast infinite space
Deep inside one’s mind
Are things yet to be uncovered
Meant for you to find
Don’t listen to others
If they say you are nuts
Believe in yourself
Do things that take guts
If there were never no leaders
To go to places unknown
We’d be back in the cave man ages
We would have never of grown
A good imagination
Is a healthy device
Use it often
Heed this advice
Think outside the box
Then figure out ways
To make your creation
From inside the maze
Of the images seen
In the back of your mind
Mixing facts with guesses
Everything intertwined
Never stop using the best tool that we have
It has no rules there so, anything goes
There are no restrictions to keep you from trying
What’s out there no one really knows
I like to visit and use what I’ve got
The things I come up with sometimes surprise me
There’s no other place for someone to go
That allows them to truly be free
Give it your best
You’ll never be wrong
Go as far as you can
You need to bring nothing along
You and your imagination
Is one of our greatest gifts
Take advantage and use it
Allow your mind to drift

    I love this write! You're right of course, the imagination is a powerful tool. Poets, especially, should learn to employ it vividly. Lovely write Lori!
