once upon a leaf

There’s a story that some rare hearts know.

A story of floating away, to the far distance lands, where sleep is allowed at all hours, dreaming is a full-time job and waking brings with it excitement and joy.

To get there, you have to completely trust the journey. That you won’t weigh down the transport, causing it to crash. That you can really leave behind the weight that would cause it to fall.

The transport wants only you. None of who you think you should be, none of who others dream you are, but only you.

I stare at my offered transport sometimes. Wondering if today could possibly be the day.

The day when I trust myself enough to try.
