dream into being

once I believed how hard it would be
to dream a life into being without needing sleep
secret keeping without grieving
selfishly longing for more love than I have

without guilt of want
loving others without pain
being loved without the shame of wanting

I know only that I am worth love
but who am I to be so proud
to long for more than I have

I beg for only one thing
that I be allowed
my dignity
