Words Of A Dolphin - Poem by Dave Shemeley

Destruction of the past, is what's taking place
Looking in the mirror, seeing a different face
Wonderful gift has been granted, is what they all say

Words of thy soul forever be flowing, even on this day
Scars are all healing with every rhyme and every phrase
Getting me out of this hell, of a deep dark haze

One day soon, it will all come to be
No longer asking, what's the hell that burns within me
No egotistical thoughts, that is not a lie

Having my confidence, getting a piece of the pie
Doubters will come, and doubters will go
My inner light forever, continues to grow

A masterpiece awaits on this journey called life
When it's complete, it will be with whomever is thy wife
Alot in the inside, breaking out of this shell

Another battle will be won, from another test of his hell
Crashing ahead coming in waves, so many at hand
Waves reach the shoreline, I shall forever stand

May not always do right, never will I preach
It's a life lesson taught, now I must teach
I can feel it in thee, in moments a scare

Never give in, even on a dare
No longer a curse, living like thee
Destroying the hate, soon shall be free

What will he do then, chase after another?
He shall not win, for I am your brother!
Whoever you are and whatever you see

We are all one, believe the rhyme of thee
Will not be long till we see our own fate
Life is to short, no time to hesitate

Money and wealth, oh so true it's easier to live
When you have nothing, are you still willing to give
Words of a dolphin, flys like a dove
Abandon your darkness, for your light and your love
