I almost forgot about this week’s décima challenge, so here is my response. This was also inspired by FOWC: Lucid. I used to have nightmares a lot, and they were mostly very repetitive. Eventually, I learned how to control my dreams better so that my dream-self would not keep falling into the same traps!
Scary nightmares are familiar:
Disaster coming, or someone
Dangerous, from whom you must run,
Though the threat is always faster.
Learn to be a lucid dreamer,
So that the monsters can’t come back,
So that before it fades to black
The dream has a better ending.
The rules from before are bending,
Of strength to change there is no lack.
