You Ever?

You ever?
You ever want to smile when you are sad?
You ever want to laugh when society says you should cry?
You ever have a song you wish you could sing?
You ever feel a dance in your legs you wish you could dance?
You ever?

You ever?
You ever have a Thought you wish you could think...out loud?
You ever hear words in your heart you wish you could speak?
You ever Have a dream you wish you could live?
You ever?

You ever?
You ever want to build what others want to tear down?
You ever want to love what most people hate?
You ever embrace what some say you should reject?
You ever?

You ever want to be you when others want you to be someone else?
You ever want to shine when your friends want you to be dim?
You ever want to live your life the way you want to live?
If by chance you ever get free from the influences of the world and be the real
you, then and only then will you never have to be asked if you ever and you begin to proclaim, I have, I am and I do.

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me
Who have not drawn the veil to see
If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
