Chasing The Dream Like The Breeze
Written by: Wilfred Mellers, Sunday, November 7,2010 @ 12: 32 PM

I had a dream once that fell apart and broke my heart
I had a dream the next day that too went a stray
I had dreamed another one that ended before it begun
Dreams are shattered glass of my past like moments never last

Luck swept out the door too soon for the rains are monsoons
Straws blow in the wind for never too much was that tender touch
Lost in space for so on goes on the rat race
Peace of mind to find so long left behind for its luster no longer shines

The glory days now gone and now comes the dawn
Movements not too smart but I need to be with the beat of my heart
Harder grows the days facing while dreams I am chasing
Once all was clear now it vanishes in thin air

Caught midstream floating from one to another extreme
In turmoil I dreamed for all was never as it seemed
Down goes my self-esteem for sadly it was all just a dream
In my head I scream for all the rivers I swam were all upstream

Giving it all you got but never reaching the top
Struggles I no longer win for the air is just too thin
Bad mouth speaking for they are mice squeaking
Lost is the mystique for now all angles are oblique

I am not the freak in dark alleys sneak
Always turned the other cheek for seldom found what I seek
Done before I could peek went my lucky streak
My soul does not reek like the bleak pipsqueak

Metamorphic is not my physique for it could do with a tweak
Considered an antique and said hands said to be weak
They critique and never understood the technique
I am meek and quite unique to speak

It is very nice to think
The world is full of meat and drink,
With little children saying grace
In every Christian kind of place.... Read complete »
