Treasure Island

Cornell 'RappinGrandaddy' Harris aka 'RG' Poetry

I Dare Dream Because...

I dare dream because my dreams are
The seed of God’s purpose for my life.
I dare dream because my dreams are
The things I go after with my life.

Going after my dream is going after God’s purpose.
Going after God’s purpose is going after God’s word.
I see what I dream burning within me,
Faith coming hearing God’s word.

Like, the soil commands an apple seed,
“Seed, become an apple tree! ”
God’s word commands my dream,
“Dream, become a reality! ”

My dreams are new life every day
Unlocking my potential
and triggering my destiny.
I dare dream as I make my way!

Again my dream makes my life new every day
Unlocking God’s calling within
and releasing God’s gift without!
I dare dream as I move about.

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
