Walking into a Dream

Leave a comment Standard

There it is…
In the cold night
An old breath blown out
This night is not dead
Dreams glimmer in the sky
a moment packed full of information
full of words for a poets thrill
Constellations, like a roadmap from dream to dream
Draw the line with your minds eye
When will you bloom, oh beautiful soul
When will you come into your own?
When might you feel yourself?
When might the world finally see you?
Such transformations come with hardship
A long grueling journey across the seas
Your power will come, won’t it?
If you just follow your north star
Let it guide you in the night
When the unknown blinds you with uncertainty 
Will you keep your crown bright?
Such a dreamer pulling the pieces together
Don’t forget to breathe
For all the footsteps in the snow count
As much as the last one
When walking into a dream

Surfing a Dream

Leave a comment Standard

I’m tired of singing in my head
I know that this won’t get me anywhere
It is time to sing instead
the judgment I must not care

this mountain is a beast
I’m out here in the west, 
but grew up in the east
I’m a man on a mission, man on a quest

love me for me, let me be free
I’ve just always had a big dream
the road and the music
one day you will see

the artist in me, I do believe
All I want is to ride my own wave
I want to the feel the energy
Experiencing my dream during the day

Look in the Mirror

Leave a comment Standard

this letter i need to write

and this fight is a fight

sit down you know I’m right

you hesitated, so now you feel the bite

Snap out of the denial 

Years can turn easy on the downward spiral

the hope you may have left

Go ahead and flush it down the toilet

Your last run starts now

It begins with knowing how

to stay the course despite heavy winds

the only sin are the cracks you fall through in your mind

Stay strong and you will be fine

line after line, the right words will come

the effort will fall when this world is aligned to the sun

No longer a victim when you look in the mirror

Accepting my own failure

Accepting my own right to move on

I feel like there was a part of me that knew this all along…

Sixth Layer

Leave a comment Standard

Do you feel your purpose burning in your heart?
Won’t you sing your heart out?
Won’t you speak your mind?
Won’t you release control?
Won’t you ditch perfection and be real?
All the plans in the world won’t compare to the moment
The stars crave the Earth
These dreams are not dead
I have endless words that I’d hope would hit home
I want to move to the energy
I want to destroy limitation
I want to feel the waves rolling inside of me

Do you crave an experience like I do?
Chain after chain, let’s break free
Think back to when you saw the sixth layer
When you saw the dream
When you lit up like a star
And said this is what I shall become
The journey to this picture
The agony and heartache 
Let it fly out like nobody is listening 
Let the whole world hear you scream
The dream inside will come alive
Live it so you can smile when you die
To feel satisfied, to know you were really alive

To my Dreams.

Tell me, tell me what’s going to happen here
Because, all the wasted time, I fear…
That it all will catch up to me!

(Falling away, falling away!)
All the pain I have collected
(Rising above, rising above!)
All the growing pains that take me
To my dreams!

Tell me, tell me what’s going to happen here
Because all I have are words, words sitting inside of me
I’m ready, ready to fire, to release the lack of clarity
To hear my voice, to hear my voice!

(Falling away, falling away!)
All the pain that I collected
(Rising above, rising above!)
All the growing pains that take me
To my dreams!

Swirling mixture of agony and peace
To find resolution would bring me back to the beginning
When it was easy to talk
I’m just happy to be singing

Falling away
all the pain
Rising above
All the growth, that is taking me
To my dreams

Won’t you smile with me?

the discomfort, the emotions – all that I feel
You slip away and I become stronger
Why does it have to be this way?
The differences between
I love who I am
I’d hope that everyone could feel
Feel the magic inside
Today it is all very real
The sadness, the happiness
The growing pains that push me to my dreams
I remember myself as a child, when I used to smile
Dancing in the living room, crazy and wild
The music I heard, the music I felt
Don’t you know it is why I chose you
But my eyes were wide for the world
And just because I’m gone
Doesn’t mean I don’t love you 
I am just living my dream
And I’m starting to smile
Won’t you smile with me?
All my failures, all my risk-taking
It is just the desire to breathe the air of my purpose
I’d hope you’d understand, maybe you never will
What happens to my heart
When the tires spin down the highway
When the sun is crashing behind the mountains
With this fade to black I can see
All my childhood memories
My bike and the autumn leaves
Thank you for the good
Thank you for the bad
And today I stand as a man
Starting to smile again
Won’t you smile with me?

Voice

the dichotomy of being blessed and cursed

Coming back to life, someone let me out of this hearse

They say the best comes right after your experience the worst

I got the music trapped inside, I hear it clearly verse after verse

I’ve been dying to explode, waiting to give life to these lyrics

Feel like a chokehold is being released from my neck

I already know so there is no need to inspect

Just need to better detect, better protect

Unleash wise bullets and go up a step

I can feel my confidence returning

Shedding depression from always yearning

Listen my voice return from the dead

How much forgiveness does it take?

Or the neutrality in the center of my head

I’m shaking off the cobwebs and doubt

Snakes and spiders disappear, I feel lighter

Vampires sucking my life-force, finally on the way out

This is a long road back, but I’ll get my forte back intact

God of my heart in the sky and my legs moving along this track

Theres no looking back because everything underneath me is coming undone

Dark clouds vanish, I can feel the light of my gold sun
