If you have passion Why not dream… -- Poetry 2009


Somehow I …
strangled my dreams
with ribbons of defeat;
bound passion
with strands of disbelief.
Poisoned my mind
with critical messages.
Mired myself in ordinary,
normal, safe representations.

-- -- -- --
How much time is left …
to manifest my dreams –
to release the passion –
to censor the critic -
to rise above the mire -
to summon the courage to be unique –
to stand out from normal
How much time
