The Dream Lives on

THE DREAM LIVES ON

I shall arise and drive forward
The future is not tomorrow
Today is all I have.

I hunger for progress,
Living in this world of contrasts,
The young and the old despair
I shall arise and drive forward.

I relish the beauty in the present
Moment that promises the holiness
Of life now and in the moment of finality
The future is not tomorrow
Today is all I have.

My heart craves for satisfaction,
Of the parching thirst desert like
A light in the tunnel of my life’s travels
To meet with the dream of my creation
Today is all I have.

The elder’s coals are in embers
The desert nights are snowy
Desire to warm myself
With the fire from those ahead of us
I shall arise and drive forward.

With embers gone comes new fire
New wine in new wine skins
We birth a new source, new warmth
Aiding us to start new journeys
Meet with pilgrims from afar
Today is all I have.

This fierce dream defies the law
Of death, does it rise again?
Like a phoenix from the embers
Of deadened living in this world of contrast.
The dream lives on.
