Answer to the Dream

Tue, 08/16/2016 - 00:57 -- MarleyK

we learn to hate

to slice and maime

to choose our possessions 

and keep souls bound and chained


every mortal wants to be immortal

every one wants to be free

what is keeping us so imprisoned

is condoning bloodshed and greed


this is a love poem

for it’s within all of you

this is  a poem to god

for you are the holiest truth

this is the plea to the beast who

curses all darkness,

to ask the wolf to stop

drinking from this carcass


we enslave animals

and yet want to be free

the echoes of our light

have fallen undersea


to be told riddles,

to be bribed and lead

let your heart be your leader 

and stop living half-dead


your soul is your compass,

not skin, species, or gender

we’re infinite 

we’re full of magic

we’re rapturous in splendor


for we carry heaven 

in are palms,

in our eyes

stop looking to someone else to save and revive


we transfigure others through our words,

and all relations

the dreams that we each have are new revelations


it’s complete in this world

when one is attacked

from mothers, to man

from Texas to Iraq


we are all graced


the power within

stop believing that its possible

for an angel to sin


this isn’t a cry, this isn’t a yawmp

it’s you and me singing out what every soul wants,


is peace


take your head back out of their hands

and light up the stars with your scream


for we are the pieces of the map, we are the answer to the dream.
