Will I Climb?

A poem by Isabelle Sorrells


In my dreams

Of adventure

I wonder –

Would I pursue the same

In the real world?

When the smokescreen is gone

And my vision of roses removed

Will all my romanticized interpretations

Be worth having?

Or am I just kidding myself

With what I want to be?

Would I climb the same heights

In life

That I did

In my dreams?
