I Had Me a Dream

Updated on May 27, 2012


Early in the morn, I wake with a smile

Nay Grief! Nay Tense, Nay complaint to file

The sun breaks the mist, pride in its gleam

Of this day as such! I had me a dream



Earth so green, exotic her beauty

Smokeless her makeup, mother smells so fruity

Winds play frantic n free, down the valleys they beam

Of this day as such! I had me a dream



Read history today, left me mesmerized

No war recorded, only one world strived

Battle went vestigial, was lost unseen

Of this day as such! I had me a dream




Old chaps at the grill, us laughed night long

Each peg of rum shot a gay song

All thorns were cut, no boulders in a stream

Of this day as such! I had me a dream



A bloke I met today, told me news he’d heard

Disease left the world, lost and battered

Pain receives a funeral, tonight, all men redeem

Of this day as such! I had me a dream



Moments were found today, shared with fellow men

Age wasn’t fretted upon, Beauty to life was given

The falling of fruits from a tree, made a joyous scream

Of this day as such! I had me a dream



Strong and frail danced together today

Frail didn’t fear, strong showed no dismay

All standards unset, in one straight seam

Of this day as such, I had me a dream



All strife nulled today, Gods came down from heaven

Rose a goblet of rich grapevine with blessed redeemed men

Rain outpoured, ecstasy came, crust, let off all steam

Of this day as such! I had me a dream

      Is this a Rap or Poetry? I really didn't get the title "I had ME a dream" Perhaps I'm the one who has a rusted brain. But still, I loved your poem (if it's so). Rhyming words... Smooth Flow... Yeah Rahul! It's really... Mast hai Yaar!

      How do I find the words to express how awesome this poem is. I can't. I can only say that this has to be one of the most powerful pieces I have read yet. I take my hat off to you. I stand in your corner, praying for the day this dream comes true. It's a beautiful world for those of us who take the time to see it. How much more beautiful it would be if this dream would come to fruision. I'm keeping the faith.

      Rahul0324, such a great poem and wonderful dream. It sure would be nice if all this was possible, but it is a handful that don't allow it. I commend the wisdom and heart you have my young friend. Perhaps this will encourage some to change.

      I've personally experienced truth in the adage "it's darkest just before the dawn". Your joyous dream paints a picture of Heaven, as I was taught in school. I hope your dream comes true. Gorgeous, hopeful, inspiring imagery. You are an artist that uses words to paint.
