Waking Up From The American Dream: A Poem

Updated on December 17, 2010

Waking Up From The American Dream

Waking up From The American Dream

Here I wake
Strange Feelings arise
Running rampant
Through my mind

Feelings of getting out
Of this bloody cage
I call a life
Being alive Being alive

I say redundancy is not an option
Time for adventure
Time for risk
Going in circles

Day out & Day in
Tired of feeling lonely
Tired of feeling trapped
Pacing back & forth
Losing track of mind

Needing something different
Needing something new
Needing a new course of action
From this dreadful life askew

Grab my things
Walk out the door
Never looking back
Pushing forward

Life of adventure has never been sweeter
Fresh air of this country side hither
Annoyed by the city, fresh change ahead
Going forth to a new found land

Peaceful thoughts
Quiet Aura
Found a new love
Her name is Kortni

Rapturous Love
Blissful Life
Never going back
To the redundant life of "The American Dream"

      Thank you for your advice, I did think for a bit to do this or have it in stanzas(which when making I did have them in stanzas) but again thank you.. I think I will go back to my original plan now since someone else believes I should have it in stanzas as well.. Thank you and glad you enjoyed it.

      I like your words but I'm no fan of how this is crowded together. This would paint a much more poignant picture if arranged into stanzas or individual lines. As it stands, it feels like something you were trying to crowd into an e-mail and weren't sure if you had the space. Let it breath a little.
