[ On Poetry ] Lucid Poeming

   
   
Recently given the challenging task of    
writing a poem to my younger self    
I have to ask    
is it considered a paradox if my message    
was actually received?    
   
He did end up paying more attention to his dreams    
And through reverse engineering of their construction    
he translated what his subconscious was saying    
and learned to create associations with words;    
   
even dreamt one night of a person's name    
he'd never heard before!    
who as it turned out    
was not only an actual human being    
but also an author of several books on    
how to be a more efficient writer    
   
These events helped shape my poetry today    
making my aforementioned competition entry a reality    
   
Everyone else wrote to themselves about    
what was going to happen later in life    
   
I wrote to myself about the need to    
change his behavior    
   
how to become the writer I am today
