I dreamt of being a snowflake while I slept a restless sleep. It was quick -- painless Like the death I always thought I'd be given. I thought I fell from the heavens, Touched by immortality and morality, An open book -- open arms Waiting for someone to save. The prideful, hubris rotten, humans Are the first to fall like bodies that could never quite get the parachute to open -- Frantic and regretful until... Splat. I dreamt I was a snowflake, But I do not deserve such a painless and gentle death: Take my life, give it to another, Surely there is any other more worthy than I -- I who have never reach for another, I who cannot because pride demands me not to, I who never learned it's okay to be weak Until I found myself broken -- Like an oversized icicle, mocking and proud until gravity took it down. I know it was just a dream when I saw myself a snowflake Because I will not go gentle into the night.
