Those Impossible Dragons!

Dragons
soaring shamelessly overhead in broad daylight
shimmering
intimidating you into cringing beneath their shadows
diminishing you by their super-inflations

They have stolen from you
withheld necessities from you
are hoarding your treasures in dark caves
and obscuring them in the stench of their exhalations

Again and again you have braved the darkness
born scars from the violence of their flames
convinced yourself that it will be different next time
that you will be stronger
that you can somehow, skillfully, wield the Sword of Reason
that the dragons will grow hearts
and be transformed

But these sorcerous beasts
have the power to bend reality
within the domains of their labyrinths
those crafted snares that you step into
and the circulating rumour of soft dragon bellies
has proven to be a myth

Eventually
a moment of clarity will emerge
a gift from another dimension
a most wondrous and mystical jewel
it will alight upon your forehead
imprint its essence upon your consciousness
before dissolving back into its home realm

And you will see
the price you have paid in fighting for what was rightfully yours
And you will see
that you have exhausted all of your options
And you will see
that you are not as forlorn or as destitute as you once thought
And you will choose to simply stop
engaging with those dragons

Then with all of that energy
freed for redirection
you will discover your ability
to co-author your own fairytale
and to perceive treasures scattered all around you
that you never even knew existed

And those dragons?
It turns out that they have been feeding upon your anguish
upon your awe and your fear
so without the stream of your life-force
flowing in their directions
they will shrink, weaken, and fade
and retreat into their labyrinths
the only places where they can shift their realities
and imagine themselves
to be the shining stars of their own illusions

And that is the closest you will ever come
to successfully defeating
those impossible dragons!
