By Michael W. Raley
What if we revived dreams
We once deemed dead and gone?
What if we were to re-open our minds
To the possibilities we so easily dismissed?
Opportunities come in so many different ways,
Through good circumstances and bad,
We often fail to recognize them.
While we have this present moment,
Let us open our hearts to love again.
Though the cities of our minds
May have been raided and destroyed
By events and people,
We can rebuild like Nehemiah and the walls of Jerusalem.
This process will have its ups and downs,
But the results will be well worth the effort.
