God, Dreams, My feelings

I was 15 when I first looked up to the heavens.
My mind was in a dazed as I looked up into the sky.
I thought about taking a trip to the moon in my mind.

Until my Holy Spirit came and changed my mood,
I was feeling mellow now but I was still caught up in my dreams.

So I closed my eyes and then my soul and mind was traveling back
into the heavens where the Lord’s power kept my soul with him.
And there he took my empty body or grounded me and there I saw
my dreams lay before me.

When I saw my future dreams lay before me, I prayed to God and eventually
this bird came back to my soul, and helped me dream about a new and improved dreams.

I kneeled down and started to pray to my Lord about the choices that I will make
When leaving this nasty place. My prayers seemed good and honest but I had a weird
feeling that with the sins I have made, it would be best to pray to myself.
And keep it hidden, to confide in no one, absolutely no one.

While praying and dreaming, I learned to have the last laugh and push pass it, and to be myself, and have an open mind about what I dream.

“Dear God. Thank you for helping me to push pass my bad sins like you said I will not look back, I will ask for forgiveness and move on.”

I was 15 when I first looked up to the heavens.
My mind was dazed into the skies, I thought about taking a trip to the moon with God.
