from "Middletown Dreams":
Dreams flow across the heartland
Feeding on the fires
Dreams transport desires
Drive you when you're down
Dreams transport the ones who need to get out of town
By every single person
Who'd be elsewhere if they could
So far so good
And life's not unpleasant
In their little neighborhood
They dream in Middletown
Change. It's all at once frightening and exciting. Some people choose to follow their dreams. Others never explore them either out of fear or laziness. Following your dream usually means giving up something, or everything, to follow it. And for a few of us, change happens all by itself, without asking our permission and we are left with no choice but to leave everything we have known behind. This presents the opportunity to follow those long forgotten dreams. Otherwise we might have stayed at home and been content in our little neighborhoods.
