Imagination can take you
places you were never meant to know,
filling gaps that won’t stay closed.
Imagination can not fulfill
the longing of a soul,
in fact, it expands the hole.
It’s not a wise choice
to imagine a different realm
when reality isn’t waiting there.
There is a place for imagination,
a healthy arena,
where thoughts can gallop safely contained.
Hold tight the reins
for it is a wild untamed beast
that will try to bust through the gate, carrying you to rugged places,
always promising an oasis
that it keeps projecting ahead
so you can’t rest at the place God has you.
