Brushing Off Our Dreams

Shaking off our dreams

We cleanse our thoughts in the first morning seconds

Like brushing sand off a seashell

And adding it to our collection

Steamy showers wash away blurred vision

Clean the new day

A pristine treasure

Pure life we find in waking thought

Lucidity emerges

To fulfill our wishes

*

Breaking into scenes

The fierce challenge of each day beckons

Like the test that we have to take

Then we ace it with affection

Rolling waves carry us across oceans

Find the new day

Take good measure

Sink feeling into every thought

Flowing emotion surges

Riding high with calm wishes

*

Soaking in our dreams

Keys to reality from early check-ins

Like calming waves over castles

And our footprints’ resurrection

Streaming life we calmly change the channel

Run a new day

Squishing pleasure

Into boots of bubbles and soothing thought

Washing away anxious urges

Peace in knowing our own wishes

The Truth Surfaces

***

I feel incomplete

Not in defeat

I must confess

I aim to be perfect

as is

*

I don’t stress about it

and though the rest may doubt it

I am really trying for the best

For all intents and purposes

*

The best is calm

Or exciting

Always caring

I hope, delighting and kind

When the truth finally surfaces

*

If I’m in to deep

and I can’t sleep

I must confess

I deal with so much stress

As is

*

I manage anyway

Doesn’t matter what they say

I really try for the best

For all intents and purposes

*

The best is calm

Yet igniting

Always caring

I hope

inviting

better bests

When the truth finally surfaces

*

Aim for peace and love

Not gross wealth held above us

Restricting freedom and safety

For personal gain

No unjust pressure on workers

Encourage instead

Offer provision and care

Don’t leave us for dead

If we can’t produce

and you see us as worthless

*

Has the deal gone to Hell?

How has it? Please tell

You know what to do

And you don’t

*

For faith I will leap

No hill is too steep

I’ve come to expect

The effort is worth it

*

I don’t stress about it

and know I can’t live w/o it

I really try for the best

For all intents and purposes

*

The best is calm

and providing

Always caring

Surviving

Find peace and love

When the truth finally surfaces
