Partners in Poetry--Yancy and Diana Dalton, United States

All is well that ends well
By Yancy and Diana Dalton, United States

No T.V. to break the sound                              
Lost in books we've found
Painting realms in our mind
Reality & magic entwined

Living the tale, we tell
In faith, it will end well
Yet, dragons under our bed
Move inside our head

Our story projects our lives
As our fairytale thrives
Dragons, daemons & heroes
So, a mythical fear arose

Projected on life's screen
Plot appears to be mean
We become so engaged
We are blindly enraged

"Hey! You, way up there
You're supposed to care"
Yelling & screaming, Oh God!
Then things start feeling odd

Gentleness infuses our mind
Warm, enticing & kind
"You can't see the Master's plan
Fear is blindness of man

Script is written, story won
You too are my beloved one
Follow the plan with me
I'll show the way to victory

Endless is my being in you
Express our essence true
Come within for the allowing of
Never ending, peace, joy & love"

  2. Well, I love the line "Dragons under our bed" - to me shows the fears we, as humans, endure. But there is a lovely sparkle throughout the poem projecting a positive, bright outlook. Well done.
