Somewhere In Time

I am sharing a poem that has been on whatever wall i have had the pleasure of looking at since i was a freshman in college. 
It has hung on 4 different dorm walls... followed me to 2 apartments... and now the home i live in with Mr. PML. 
It has been my "mantra".... of sorts... for a very long time now. 
I hope you enjoy it too...

"Somewhere In Time"

"Somewhere in time
there's a place for me.
I'm told it's in the centuries.
Born in the wrong time and place,
possibly of the wrong gender and race,
as well as financial endowment.

Who am I?
I am the dreamer.
One who lives in each and every living soul.
The one who is not content with where she is now
but wishes she's someone she isn't.

I am the dreamer of the past.
Of things old, yet cherished.
I bring them from the past
and keep them alive in the present.

I am the dreamer of the future.
Who foresees a great horizon.
and greets it with open arms,
therefore, creating reality."
