A Poet's Dream

A poet dreams, a poet writes Words of passion, mostly unlike, Like a rhythm nation, they rock in time Coming from strange but gifted minds Like a blank canvas that opens up so many feelings and thoughts Writing words that will affect other people’s hearts, Dreams filled with hopes and despair and some with luck Others just need the words to help pick them up A poet words help others to find their deepest feelings within their own being Hopefully they will teach as well help those who need just need some healing, With love and a understanding that can be construed between each line Taking on subject matters to their limits and beyond most of the time Subjects which may considered tabooed, others are right on the mark Company that is for the lonely, one who hides away in the dark, Addictions and life’s tough woes, a constant reminder for all Breaking down the barriers of the self imposed walls Aspirations of greatness stopped by the initiatives of a once strong will Pouring out the kindness that will essentially help those with the will to live, Granted far be it not everything is always right But hopefully the truthful meanings come out in the things a poet writes Passions of truthful inspirations coming with the territory of what we live Trying to show the goodness we have learned and what we have to give, Reflections of a simpleton who plays the poor man’s role Someone who struggles daily to reach their goals No judgments or scruples that can be comprised to clog up a mind Basic instincts that weave moral fabrics, keeping track of somebody during their lifetime, Ethics proposed to every individual so they stay on track and not get forgotten in the mist Remembering those who simply need a hug or a loving gentle kiss Producing pictures like a physic that’s able to see within the mind of others Taking them on a journey within a piece of literature about many subjects covered, Each individual deciphers the messages that touches their own heart differently it seems Keeps a poet writing, bearing their soul that is filled with all of his or her, Dreams!
