Writing Prompt “It’s all in the title” – Unfinished Dreams


The girl who was made of unfinished dreams.

She turns the page and looks at the next image.

She remembers the dream in which she encountered the river

Flowing rapidly, it hissed at her to stay away.

But she needed to cross and stepping into it the current dragged at her

She struggled as she knew across the stream was a better place.

She was always moving towards a better place, it played on her mind.

For so long life had been about acceptance,

Her lot in life was same old same old.

Here she felt safe, secure, familiar.

But she craved love, acceptance and care

She knew it was out there

Mostly out of reach but a dream she clung to.

She had urges to travel, but insecurities prevailed

Tied her down, hobbled progress

So, her day dreams sustained her

She cared about the boy, but he was out of reach

As she was to him.

They had shared the same dream

Touched each other’s souls like nothing before

Thrilled and excited the prospect of what might be.

But until then she’d remain

The girl made of unfinished dreams.

    Aww… I agree. Relatable. But it’ll always be a work in progress.

  3. Everyone had said this already but I was like OMG is he writing about me because it sounds like me and probably a bit like all of us
