Imagination Line


Time and again they let go

So unaware of what the dreamers know
Her voice is born into the night
Her words transforming this darkness to light—
Just around the forgotten bend to the end
Effortlessly floating, across the imagination line
Each day we gather courage and create
While on the corner, fear makes them wait
A bridge arises in burnt out minds
Disappointment holds in their hearts a lie
That reaching means only falling in the end
‘Cause through the flames they couldn’t see the forgotten bend
That waits to lead their gift across the imagination line
Most days he wants to vanish in the wind
Weary of his words, he silences them again
The inspiration he had born once saved a life
Still he can only count the pages left to write
But in that moment where he opens his eyes
A small white star shines above the imagination line
Each day we gather courage and create
While on the corner, fear makes them wait …
