Light Sleeper

He hides his emotions, prefers to store them away, he’s not understood anyway, everyone is busy, it’s just the way, he climbs the stairs to the sleeping room, one day he sighs, there will be light and no more gloom. He’s heard it from a friend, you can make the future what you want, you just have to write it down, and have a soul that is connected that way. What do you mean he says, is there a magic source, his friend points to the sky, that’s your friend, it’s a sunny afternoon the day they have this conversation. Anyway, up he goes, he’ll read a book awhile before he settles down to sleep. You just have to dream it he said, or was it write it, he can’t be sure,  in the middle of a half sleep, not sure where he’s heading.

He’s on a space ship, is he leaving the world or discovering a new one, he can’t make out, but he continues to dream. His best friends are with him, they pal together in class, they are not like the other kids, they are not cool or any of that stuff, the teacher says they are slow, so they formed a class out of them, for the so called slow children among us, what’s the rush as they say, going nowhere in traffic is going nowhere in traffic no matter how smart you are.

The ship climbs, leaves the earth behind, wow says one of his friends, from up here it looks so small, and down there we are treated as if we are small, what a difference the view makes adds another. Wouldn’t it be great if we found God or someone who knows him, it could be a her says Wendy, always the mother, whatever, would it not be great if we found the source of all light. The dream continues, the ship enters the cosmos, till they finally encounter God Most High.

Well children, you’ve come a long way to see me, meaning, you have gone to a lot of trouble and pain and you still believe in me, what is it i can do for you then?

He smiles in his dream, how about this, just fill us with the wisdom to get rid of the evil that corrupts our world, and then..You want more asks God, well, we have friends you know!

Child awakes refreshed, a new zest inside him, starts thinking of what he wants put right in the world, and it then begins to happen, how about a dream like that he says to his friend, the light sleeper, amen.
