as new dreams arise

Prior work


Unearthing, sacred truths bring to light 
so many things that beforehand lay hidden 

and his voice rings clear and true 
he fell off the wall, neither I nor you 

to be himself and all he could be 
with or without all the kings horses or men 

to be yourself, his fervent wish 
the road we each must take, alone 

the futility we often times come against 
a madding crowd - formidable, unforgiving 

but the greatest hindrance lay within 
laying down the dream is sure defeat 

a parade, his childhood dream to see 
and that he attained, however brief 

the truth - his passing is not in vain 
his light reveals the way of freedom 

that gaze is faraway - not unfocused 
meeting another set of questing eyes 

sweetly surrender - a dream's demise 
and like a phoenix - as new dreams arise
