Poem: Dreamers! video...

Updated on February 29, 2012


It should not ever

be like this

But however, it is!

When you are

in a tight spot

I can almost hear

Already hear you

screaming, you are

shouting out to any

withing the sound

of your voice.

You're having this

need to know why?

Asking yourself

again and again

Why are things

the way they are

Instead of the

way that they are

supposed to be!

I see you taking

a ride with nothing

on your side but

pure unadulterated

wishful thinking

We call fantasy!

Nothing good

or true about them

they are merely

a figament of

our imagination


Ever rings true.

Even their laugh

signals a lie.

Their smiles forbids

don't even try

they are lies.

When they speak

the lies obviously

becomes even

More pronounced.

They will remember

They cannot use

that lie tomorrow

But somehow

they foolishly will!

They are liars

They make for

the very worst


Neither can you

use it for any

reason at all

because I have

already told you

all you needed

to know about truth.

Where in life

did it come from?

In addition

Why do I do

the things that I do.

Where does the

passion come from?

That which makes

both them and you

have that energy

to always continue?

We must learn

To give thanks,

and praises

Each and every time

The need arises.

While I am on that

giving bandwagon.

I will give you a thought.

Each day of your life

gets you a day closer

to everything that you are.

it about to put into use

that which you are

made of, the truth,

Your truth must yield

the reason you are

who you are presently!

Here what Bob Marley

Said: “Get up stand up”

Stand up for your right.

In taking a good look

Humans sould always

be allowed to live

their own lives.

But in the event

of that slightest

sign of a possible

threat of enslavement.

Let us get with

Bob’s suggestion

Surely stand up!

If standing up

means transmitting

A defensive posture

Then remember.

We all have this:

Our God given right

To survive at all times

and also everywhere.

If there is no you.

then your part has

already been played.

The life force already

snuffed out of you.

If you are present,

yet still you keep

clocking in absent

You have to be put

with those who are

under suicide watch?

They are the ones

that are made up to be

the most terrible,

      It's quite as simple as that. You cannot have all , so seek the little that is yours and when you have it and like it make more , find more , plant more , at least now there is a direction.

      Thanks you Gypsy Rose Lee.

      That's the simplicity therein, for this is not school..

      Loved it. Sometimes people spend too much time with their heads in the clouds and less time doing what they ought to do.

      You are the king , you hold the throne in the comment world and you took it in a world of your own. I guess instead of the rooftop , it will be go tell it on the mountain!

      Thanks brethren Frank.

      Thanks Cardisa. And I love when you are first on here ,it leads to thoughtfulness , henceforth.

      Yes destiny as we follow it's ways and it leads us ,it should be a thing of beauty attracting others , never to repulse , that will ensure a form of slavery . Knowledge is power, and the power to know oneself is the key.

      Thanks for stopping by as you are always most welcome.

      Give Thanks

      Some of us become the slave of our own destiny. We need to learn to enjoy life as we realize our dreams.
