To think, To wonder, To dream

My thoughts are jumbled
I wonder about the world
My dreams are bound to crumble

I think abstractly
I wonder about all
I dream too vividly

To feel, To love, To touch

Feeling with the nerves inside me
Loving things that I’ve never known
Trying to touch everything I see

I feel deeply
I love all I see
I touch too quickly

To travel, To explore, To see

I travel into the misty night
To explore the great unknown
To see the world bathed in light

I travel far
I explore thoroughly
I see too little

To believe, To pray, To lean

Believing in the one bigger than I
Praying to he who knows my desires
Leaning on him when I stop to cry

I believe strongly
I pray longingly
I lean too lightly

The pattern is simply wonderful! And the title really fits this poem. This is a really good poem, Emilee--and you're becoming a better poetic each time you write a new one, really!
