UNTIL THEY ARE MY REALITY: a poem by ed


Am I thinking,
or am I dreaming?
Because for a moment
I believed I was a person
which cannot be true because
all my life I have been told I am
nothing, but the label they gave me,
and to not think about climbing too far
up the mountain of success, but rather just
accept my place and wear my psychiatric label.

However, I just decided
they cannot control my fate
with their hate of who I am or
with who I can become despite labels.
So, if I am thinking or dreaming does not
matter because I will continue to dream and
think about my dreams until they are my reality.
