A Minor Prophecy

Don’t worry darling, you will get to the shore.

When you wake up
and wish you didn’t,

Remember this,
You will get to the shore,
The one you keep on dreaming,
even when you cannot imagine it at all—

You may arrive when the sun is already set,
with no moon or stars on your sky,
or any laughter to accompany you,
but there will be no water filling up your lungs,

You will breathe the warm salty air,
You’ll feel the breeze caressing your skin,
You’ll hear the wave crashing, echoing far behind you,




And you’ll see your own legs standing on the soft sands,

Remember this,
You will get to the shore,
The one you keep on dreaming,
even when you cannot imagine it at all—

Oh darling,
You’ll get to the shore.
