Know Your Dreams - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Claim you will not maim,
Those goals you have named to achieve.
No matter if your shoulders hold a heavy load...
Keep your motor fueled.
Don't be fooled by losers.
Wishing to melt away your 'cool'.

Keep that heat you've got,
Turned up and piping hot!
Don't let that boat you row spring a leak.
Or be stopped by a rocking that shocks...
Your eyes,
Away from the prize.
Keep alive,
Those dreams not meant to idle.

Claim,
You will not maim...
Those goals you have named to achieve,
Accomplish and to realize.

Keep alive your eyes and kept on the prize.
Know your dreams,
Are not meant just to idle.

Keep that heat you've got,
Turned up and piping hot!
And know your dreams,
Are not meant just to idle.

Keep alive your eyes and kept on the prize.
Know your dreams,
Can be achieved and realized.

Keep that heat you've got,
Turned up and piping hot!
And know your dreams,
Are not meant just to idle.

Keep alive your eyes and kept on the prize.
Know your dreams,
Can be achieved and realized.
They're not just yours,
To sit around and idle.
