Edge Of Nowhere

Build your castles in the air for tomorrow's better land,
As there is not one among us who truly understands.
We sit on the edge of nowhere reaching out for somewhere new
And holding onto dreams is all that we can do.
Paths of gold and fortune's gate are just a breath away,
So grab a ride on that dream train when it comes puffing right your way.
All the answers that you seek lie deep within your mind,
For, we are all philosophers and dreamers of a kind.
Make sure you're not a prisoner, though, in the castles that you build
And then, from the edge of nowhere, your dreams may be fulfilled.

This is exactly what I needed, this poem was so ironic for me. I'm faced with many decisions as a young adult finding my place, I will always keep this poem in the back of my mind. Thank you.

Hi Marina. I am so glad you liked the poem. Your words touched my heart. In this fast paced world we live in, opportunities come and opportunities go, some are helpful and some are not. Which path to take? Decisions, decisions! 

Thank you for taking the time to read this poem. I hope that the dream train comes your way and you are able to ride on it. May your dreams be fulfilled 🚂

My Dear Tina,

I build my Castle in the sky
I beg my dreams not be denied
I've never been a "Nowhere Man"
To avoid it, I'll do all I can

Hugs, Peace and Love,

The best poetry is always the poem that seems so simple, so easy and straighforward- yet as poets we know that just arriving at making a poem fulfil all those elements is NEVER easy- yet that is what you have achieved here...It's just beautiful in its imagery, and seemless in reaching its philosophical conclusion- love it Tina! well done on your nomination- well deserved!
