Dream Blindness

Updated on January 10, 2012

I don’t want my story to be another warning story

Another car on blocks in an inner city alley

Another white-beard bum reaching for change

Begging toothless in cardboard and newsprint.



I don’t want my story to be another warning story

Another sad gentile with his head in his hands

Tears in lines

Endlessly trickling down his face.



I don’t want my story to be another warning story

The man who had it all and lost it

Too broken to rise,

Too broken to try again.


I don’t want my story to be another warning story

I don’t want to be the dreamer who pushes ahead blindly

Dreams, believes, dreams so hard and so fully

So hopelessly

That he flies only off a cliff

And into the void of death

Invisible

Whole life

One

Unheard

Whimper.



All because he couldn’t stop.

All because there was no other road.

All because he couldn’t

See.

      Beautiful. So motivating for action and flows so nicely, I can almost hear these verses being sung from afar.

      This is brilliant I felt the rhythm and the flow of your story and felt the pain of not wanting to be That Man in your story in. Yet being broken and rising like the Phoenix from the ashes any man/woman can raise to glory and feel safe that the world honors them for being who they really are. I rate this UP...bravo.
