Visions of the Night

I lay down my head upon the pillows of the night
Close these almond eyes of mine
And dream

Dreams of poetic metaphors 
Dashing between street lamps
Interior motives and neon lights
Changing landscapes
Transforming lunar eclipses
Into daylight harsh bright
Fluorescent goals and darkest hopes 
Building empires and
Demolishing them
All in the space between
The rise and fall of my chest

Politicians crash and burn
Wars are weighed by the value
Of the men holding the swords

Women are no longer dolls
And Men are no longer my conquerors

The poor are the richest in life
Babies aren’t thrown in trashcans
And children’s laughter rings through 
Neighborhood odes
My people no longer stalk the streets
To earn more then a shadow of themselves

And Poets are masters of their own Souls

This is my dream
This is my dream

I lay down my head upon the pillows of the night
Close these almond eyes of mine
And dream
