Sweet tooth… [POEM]

Dreams are cookies
baked in the ovens of God
mixed by the smiles of angels
carefully tailored
to suit the taste
of the cookie monsters
that we all are
often not considering
the recipe
or the request
we just want the sweetness
and desires as we suggest
no matter how good
our favorite ones are…

I like the chewy kind
and the warm ones
and the big ones
and the fresh ones,
the really good ones…

I always remember the good ones.

Dreaming dream… [POEM]

A
dream is
the responsibility
of mature imagination
that test possibility
with faith
and role plays
in greatness
and hides
from “safe”
in order to chase
the reality
of patience
versus
wait
and protects
what is perfect,
the energy
that procrastination
wastes
while it tries
with all its might
to stay
awake

Shine [POEM]

Shine

He once saw the sun as a dream
and he leaned in to realize himself
that dreams come true everyday
and lie every night
and come back in mornings
sometimes bright
sometimes amidst obstacles
and sometimes at different times
but they, dreams, are real
and the sun is proof
that dreams come true
and exist beyond limitations
or expectations
or beyond the reach of people
that can’t see your dream
while its bright
but instead they recognize it only
in the dark of night
or in the shade of its shadows
unaligned with its flight
inconsiderate of its origin
or it’s plight
even though they know a dream
is sufficient light
but they question it relentlessly
until he puts up a fight
to believe in his dream
and be burnt by it
to learn by it
so he stands student to the sun
empty class quiet
trying
to feel his dream
its warmth in such a cold place
eyes open, disrobed face
blemishes made and mended
by other dreams,
suns
that came and went
long before
and long after,
him
in seasons of lack and abundance
dreams are his thunders
his hailstorms and first fruits
his slim pickings and pursuits
his “on the horizon”
his “left behind”
his one reason to not press rewind
for neither he nor his fears
can stop him from dreaming
nor believing
in the sun.

YOU have the first and final say as to whether or not YOU succeed in what YOU aspire and have set out to do. That “say” will serve no useful purpose if the language that YOU use to express YOURSELF to others is explanation and excuses as opposed to attitude and action towards YOUR goal; YOUR vision nor YOUR voice will ever “say” as much as YOUR work and willingness to commit to the completion of YOUR purpose, so DREAM, then DO!
