She Who Is The Speaker Of Her Dreams

Speaker of Dreams

Dreams can die together

They are viral

Every intertwined

Dreams can grow forever

They are vital

Slow to unwind

She who is the speaker of her dreams

Should not be scorned

Embolden this world do not lessen

You have been warned

The dreams which you dismiss

The dreams which the crowd denies

Is that which in perpetuity is lost

And all that loss implies

When I Failed

When I let them measure my worth

That is when I failed

And fell asleep

Now I am awake

And I will fill my life

With that which I value

Not the value

Which they judge me

To be worth

A Spring Wish

I want to be the man I am on the best of days

For as many days as I able

I want my moments of wonder

To outshine those where I feel unstable

I want to live a life of light and love

Where all days I feel enabled

Come sit with me and we will talk of joys

All are welcome at my table

Your Words Are Not Inconsequential

Your words are not inconsequential
Together they are substantial
On the timeline viewed in the sequential
Desire for change rains torrential
