NOT MY MOTTO

Hurriedly I tear the dark
That insists on getting tangled in my feet
Preventing me from advancing.
Accommodating me is not my motto
I’m in a hurry to get there!

Hurriedly I tear indifference
That insists on seizing my senses
Stopping me from feeling and thinking
Accommodating me is not my motto
I’m in a hurry to get there!

Hurriedly I tear the convention
That insists on walling my will
Preventing me from speaking out
Accommodating me is not my motto
I’m in a hurry to get there!

Hurriedly I tear the notebook and pen
That insists on writing my track
Imposing me rules that I don’t want to abide
Accommodating me is not my motto
I’m in a hurry to get there!

Hurriedly I tear the fate
That insists on riding my life
Preventing me from being me
The reins are in my hand
I’m the one to tame it
Accommodating me is not my motto
I’m in a hurry to get there!

I learned that after the wrecking
Things start to work out
After sweating the tow
I successfully cut the goal!

It’s time to rest and relax!

 

DREAM CATCHER

I dreamed you on a dream night
You were my most beautiful dream.
I still see you swinging
In the dream catcher.
The ethereal image on my retina.
My blood boiled!
You came down
and came to sit beside me.
I still feel the warmth of your hand
nestled in mine.
I still see the turquoise sea
in the deep of your eyes
I still catch a glimpse of the fragrant smile
on your sweet full lips
I still smell jasmine
that perspired from your skin

You are everything to me!

I still have a sense of ownership
of your tangled hair in mine
silvered by the moonlight
falling from the moon …

As if you were mine
and I was yours!

You know love
you are completely inseminated
in my mind and in my heart!
And for all intents and purposes
You are mine and I am yours …
It was the dream catcher
that made the decision.

He wanted to give us sweet dreams!
