Where Dreamers Go

I close my eyes and envision
Looking past the world’s opinions and superstitions
Letting the sky embrace me
My soul joining the stars and flying free
I’ve always been a dreamer
Thinking of wizards, dragons, kings and queens
Imagining potions, beasts, thrones and castles 
Magic like you’ve never seen
I fantasize a world of beauty, gardens bright and lush
Friends pick and gather without a fuss
Where dear old neighbors put aside opposition and join hands
Where love spreads all throughout the land
When I close my eyes it all seems clear
The world is new
I need not fear
Where fiction is no longer black and white
My mind, body and soul take flight
My thoughts start to flow
I think up a land where dreamers can go
