Do not go
Gentle into the night.
Go roaring into your dreams
Scream out loud to your subconscious
To tell you stories and secrets you shoved aside
Be ready to fall asleep and fall into the unknown
Of your truest truth and darkest lies
Who you are is often hidden
Until it is revealed
In a dream
In a thought
In a feeling
Surrender into it
With a prayer to the heavens
To never again go gentle into the night
To never again forget who you once were
Before you stepped into the life you ought to live
Before you woke into your sweetest dreams
And became the dreamer you can be
If you do not go gentle
Into the night.
In April 2020, while experiencing her first ever global pandemic, Tamar Pelzig pledged to write something every day, even if it's only a word, so she welcomed to the world a daily blog to keep her creative writing wheels rolling.
