Answer to the Dream

Tue, 08/16/2016 - 00:57 -- MarleyK

we learn to hate

to slice and maime

to choose our possessions 

and keep souls bound and chained

 

every mortal wants to be immortal

every one wants to be free

what is keeping us so imprisoned

is condoning bloodshed and greed

 

this is a love poem

for it’s within all of you

this is  a poem to god

for you are the holiest truth

this is the plea to the beast who

curses all darkness,

to ask the wolf to stop

drinking from this carcass

 

we enslave animals

and yet want to be free

the echoes of our light

have fallen undersea

 

to be told riddles,

to be bribed and lead

let your heart be your leader 

and stop living half-dead

 

your soul is your compass,

not skin, species, or gender

we’re infinite 

we’re full of magic

we’re rapturous in splendor

 

for we carry heaven 

in are palms,

in our eyes

stop looking to someone else to save and revive

 

we transfigure others through our words,

and all relations

the dreams that we each have are new revelations

 

it’s complete in this world

when one is attacked

from mothers, to man

from Texas to Iraq

 

we are all graced

with 

the power within

stop believing that its possible

for an angel to sin

 

this isn’t a cry, this isn’t a yawmp

it’s you and me singing out what every soul wants,

 

is peace

 

take your head back out of their hands

and light up the stars with your scream

 

for we are the pieces of the map, we are the answer to the dream.
