Dream of seeing myself in dentitions center
my cousin has been in prison for 2 years but he is not guilty and I see him very often in my dreams that he is outside, I don’t know if it is a good sign that he will get out or not…
I dreamt I was in a prison deep in the ocean..however the prisoners were not humans, they were beings with emotions like humans but they were just not humans. I only remember how two of the prisoners looked. One looked like a human sized snail with a glowing back and the other just looked like floating green blob. It was pitch black but I was still able to see. I remember feeling how hopeless and stuck they felt. The green blob was idle the whole time doing nothing besides feeling trapped. The prison had no walls but a fence.
I dreamt I went to prison with a friend of mine bit I was only about 13 year old. He was a bad boy and constantly got into to trouble while I kind of followed in his footsteps. Not following him like a leader but more like a role model. I got bullied and he would retaliate so in that sense.
We we were riding to the prison for youths. I got to know other kids there also for being bad. Kind of felt like the scene riding to camp from the movie ‘Holes’ and the bad kids bullying.
When we arrive we are putting into cells with a partner. Me and my new “friends” that I have made kept being mischievous. Trying to plan to run away, messing with the guards, throwing mud at them, running away and getting caught, send out out search parties and picking us up and taking us back.
Then running away but one escaped. Then I the escapees actions and footsteps. I ended up with a lady. I didn’t know the kid who ran away but he seemed younger than most. Maybe 10 years old. A lady gave me a book to read and it was HIS book he wrote. Explained how they almost caught him and how this old lady with a young daughter helped him with help of the neighbors. He unexpectedly died which is the reason of the book. It was such an unexpected twist that a boy I was holding was him. Now it’s like I’m older going thru memory lane and seeing him so happy. I woke up crying.
The strange part is throught certain aspects of the dream I would be my 13 year old self and them come back to my older self remembering my time in jail or juvi so I would bounce back and forth. Like looking at my friend and saying, “dang, remember that we used to get in trouble about in that building?” Seeing familiar teachers from school
It all ended seeing and reading this boys story. He died and I woke up crying.
