'Dreams' Part.1


I'll drown in my tears,
Coz Its Loud in my ears,
The sound is so clear,
I'm not proud of my fear_

Never took the time,
To Get it out my mind,
Will it ever get2shine,
Is this Destiny even Mine? _

There's 1chance just2grab it,
Can't be Taking Life4granted_

Praying to God for My Wings,
I wanna Fly above anything,
Just wanna wake up 1day...
Saying I'm living My Dream_

Said I'm living My Dream,
And I'm still alive it Seems.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

This was inspired by Life itself and the ones I witnessed to be living their dreams around me, or at least just a portion of it. They always tell us to persue our dreams, but they don't tell us exactly how to get there. But this was just written as I reflected back on my life on the time I wasted and the lack of effort I've put in the dream I claimed to want with all my heart because ' I never took the time' to manifest my dreams into reality. I loved it so much, but so afraid to go after it. Therefore I'm not 'proud of my fear'. Letting opportunities pass me by when there's only '1chance to grab it'. So I question myself if this dream even mine, and how bad I really want it? , and will God allow me to have it? ... But I'm so lazy, just praying and ask God to allow me to wake up one day and just let everything fall into my lap. But since I'm still alive, I have to go after it and not take 'life for granted', if I want to be above 'everything'(poverty, debt, drugs, and all other bad things) . And that's basically it!

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Dickinson

"Arcturus" is his other name—
I'd rather call him "Star."
It's very mean of Science
To go and interfere!

I slew a worm the other day—
