There is a world yes where a mouse can talk and ride a floating carpet
Here angels stand with weighted wings Caged only but by fear Not a feather to see sky nor cloud Here they stand earth bound Here flies the angel who took a leap

There is only one job for me And that is to be whoever I want to be It shouldn't be all about money it shouldn't be a constant feeling of "love me" doing the right thing should be the motivation
I dream of becoming a nurse, Coming to aid those of sicknesses hoping to not get worse Care for individuals and families,
Has a person ever seen such darkness? What makes this real? Tender kisses and blind movements, All just to feel.
Waiting for the Dreamer on the sidelines To make their move
Eighteen years have come And soon they will be gone For what I have dreamed of Is no reality Raised in the West With the ideals of the East Standing out as an individual
I’m Tired Tired of being told I can’t do something Tired of being told I’m too slow Tired of being told I’m too small Tired of being told I’m to week I’m Tired
Pleasure. But only for a few hours, until the high is over. Tension rises till the climax is reached. And when it hits it's done.
Oh mother i say as i watched tv how I wish that could be me.
Run away from your problems but where can you go? Run away from your nightmares but you keep drifting off into a distant sleep you want to wake up be told your whole life is a dream

There's something to be said about self-expression About everyone knowing who you are Without you having to tell them In a world where you are one Of 7 billion people It's easy to feel lost.
Rocking with the beat of a thousand breaths My eyes following the language of symbols Synchronized with a hundred other masters My fingers moving quick and nimble
The dream is always changing, yet it stays the same. To be a prima ballerina, to be a surgeon, a singer, a broadway star. To be a proffessional hurdler. To be an astronuat.
Oh my goodness this gun weighs a ton Too much weight gave me a strain; I wonder why I have this gun At last, we have the enemy on the run
One breathe One shiver down my aching spine One heart that yearns so deeply for a dream so far out of my reach

I had the attitude of the Mariner, the golden hair of the Human Torch, and my abs were covered by Indiana Jones' shirt. I was the opposite of a cur. I was dreaming.
As humans. We can get things ourselves. We have thumbs I aspire to be a veteranarian. I can accomplish this goal on my own ...But what about those who are helpless Like newborn babies
Exhausted Working forty hour weeks At a job you don’t belong Nobody appreciative of your efforts
The array of faces gazing at me on stage
The array of faces gazing at me on stage
Over and over we're told, "Pick something you'll enjoy" "You're gonna be stuck with it" "What is important to you?" But, where are the people asking how they can help us get there? I want to be that person.
These hands do all of the hard work in this life
My future In my mind, my future is filled with success In my mind, my future is not filled with disappointment But, that is simply impossible The future is unpredictable
Beyond a dream on a stage it isn't about me it isn't about fans, fame, fortune or other words thrown around by those who have too much and give nothing

I only want one job in this life, It's the only goal I have set with my mind. To help others in hard times, To save a sad man's wife. I have to be a doctor, with all of my heart.
I close my eyes and what do I see? I see myself just looking at me I am full of regret and sadness too on what could have been, had I not listened to you
Helping others have always been a part of me.To see them smile, to see who they end up to be.Before, they look down as if they felt shamed.They don't understand that I am not there to blame.

What is your job? Is it something you dread? Fear? Hate? It shouldn't be. What should your job be? Your job should be something you enjoy Love. Anticipate.
I went on an afternoon run, to see if I could find you.
Parents... can give me life, Teachers... will teach me curriculum, College Professors... will teach me knowledge, Medical School Professors... will provide me a mental tool,
From the day you were born, you've been feeling vile scorn, for the future they say is so bright. The school that you stay in, The church that you pray in, Just trying to snuff out the light.
What is in my way? In the way of my dream? Incorrect phrasing. Who is in my way? Is it the society that surrounds me? No. Is it my dad who wants me to be a money-maker? No.
sometimes i dream of you tendrils creeping wrapping around my heart choking out its last few beats (( thump thump --- ))

My one goal in life is to be a writer someone nice and peaceful, not a fitgher. I don't care if I have to write in a cellar just as long as one day, I'm a best seller. People don't even have to know my name,
I walk in. Adrenaline, excitement, panic, and love crash into me all at once. I look up. Hundreds of lights, thousands of colors, and endless possibilities hang above me. I look out.

Once, I wanted to be in a rock band, Jammin’ on the piano. In my made-up band, “The Treelimbs” For a while, that dream stood, And I was encouraged to dream, But that’s not what I want to do.
So I walk aimlesslyWithout aim Where did I come from?Well, that’s a trivial matter
I have dreamed of the world, trying to impact and leave my mark. First I was sure I wanted to be a Psychologist, then a Marine, then a Historian, then a narc. To help everyone, my pride unfurled. To instill some semblance of Law and Order.
I had a dream in the past before, a woman so perfect who made my heart roar, her voice echoed through each waking moment, I would feel her touch when my body jolted.
Dream marvelously entered in an oven, I kept it moist. Dream, dream, dream, A delicious dream, Vivid cake full of fresh berries and fluffy cream. Dream, dream, dream, A sparkling dream,
I dream of flying not in the sky, but in the way that a dream soaring far above our heads can lift our feet into the air. I dream of meaning something. Not to myself

As I sit here and contemplate,I would want to do something I'm passionate about,Such as skate.To be a professional has been my life long dreamSeeing kids riding my pro boards, repping my team.
Some have dreams, others have visions. It's all about setting up your goals with percision. Born, one day, sitting in an old classroom the next. But, you know, you won't be like the rest.
We live in a world Where we can't live without jewels, We were trained To be overworked money churning machines, And to let our dreams be held down by pins. Wall Street was the aim

Hard Work Drive through flames Face the endless nights Burn doubt and all else Arise higher than the sun

My sister and I have never been close. When she was in high school, and I was in middle school, we barely talked at all, except at the dinner table or a not-so-occasional quarrel. When she left for college, I could not have been more relieved.
as i picked up my dad's guitar i thought "yeah, i got this" and i wowed the audience with a flawless rendition of puff the magic dragon drawing my influences from the 1973 gibson itself
Ive always had such a passion for little kids seeing them running around and laughing. The joy of them has always put a smile on my face their smiles make me feel a warm fuzzy feeling.
Dreams are a place where the mind visions everything Some are nightmares Other sweet dreams
Welcome to my Nightmare She broke another bowl today. It was the second one this week.
One job? Honestly? I want to be a published writer. Nothing ambiguous, just a poet. Of course, I want to be a hero, A dreamer, A strong spirit,
The reel is inserted Lights are blinding The Sound is speed Cameras begin to roll
All my life I dreamed of exploring the ocean. Seeing the different marine life, Feeling what it's like to be surrounded by emptiness. I also love to work on automobiles,
A rush of iced ocean beneath my feet, Whirr of the helicopter in time with my heart beat. Clad in orange, and goggles too,
One, two, three.
I count the day's sitting in the weary cold so beaten down I shall not grow bold less the morning light washes me clean, then my purer heart might be seen, tip toe my dreams
The sickled sling which cast doubts beckons from the blackened light. An inevitable dream that awakens me abruptly, haunts my ever waking moment.
I saw you pass by my open window and your scent of flowers came rushing in I watched as you crossed the stone path laid before you Like a queen following the royal carpet laid before her
The touch of a Crush - so enamored & amorous still Certainly real w/ authenticity & setting so seductive That I would be Washed between two passions Two loves
One thing that no one can take from me is my ima
I often like to think of you like
On the sidelines
I fall asleep Images form I'm panting I'm running In a dark alley leading to a maze In a lean swaying building I hear my name Shouted Numerous times A variety of voices
Don't ever give up. Where would we be if Abraham Lincoln didn't end slavery, fixing humanity as if it's a broken cup?
Sahara heat pierces the air
Is it to fall in a chasm An abyss of despair, To view the horrifying images of eternity? To wake up From a coma And feel the urgency
Whether you want to be a famous basketball star or a congressman, don't let others say you can't It is your life-your dream, not theirs Don't let them make you do something you don't want
Nothing happens unless first we dream. And indeed I did. I dreamt, I hoped, I wished upon a star, And I prayed. I called out for mercy And begged on my knees, Crying for some sanity to emerge.
Walking into my classroom Sitting on a stool Eating ice cream. Washing dishes Having a snow fight Throwing water balloons. Doing a car wash Dancing in the rain Taking a shower.
In the night, she woke in various states of detachment. Real was not real; what is real? Reality? Such a permanent thing, to be thought of as only living In the day, but why?
I stand at the window looking at the rain run down like my pain I close my eyes then feel feeling the blood I shed I lay slowly to the floor my body starts to shake I can feel the hole in my shirt from the gun you blow once I start to see the lig
The dream to be more is a road unsure Desperate for change, it starts in me Dust off those words, those thoughts that torture The Light reaches out to set me free Take the stand and make it pure
Dream of a world in which the seas do not shove,And in which the tide never declines offers,And where the clouds are more reliable.Dream of where the grass can be whatever color you please,
To love and to be loved are two different things; especially to a girl. In order for a girl to love, she needs to be loved. On the other hand, in order for a man to love,
Stop searching,Let it go,There are times to use your eyes,for now, let it flow.Be the being of brokenhearted brutality,if that’s who you are.
Hiding behind closed doors of broken dreams and promises never lasting Stuck behind the mirror of reflection Reminiscing on what ifs and what could have beens Why can't I leave My head..
You know that feeling you get in your stomach when you see the guy of your dreams pass by. But then you realize that he will never be yours, he just a beautiful dream that you need to wake up from but you just don't want to.
I Praise with my hands folded And my knees bended. I’ll Praise standing and seated, Wherever I might be. Praising with a trail in front of me
and i never kissed your supple cherry lips
In the morning light A Poem by Larry Cruikshank
I come from a beautiful land that has a rich culture, delicious food, and extreme heat! I was born and raised in Nigeria and this will forever be my world.
Every once in a while, someone will bring you down,
This poem does contain footnotes on the bottom that may be used for clarification since there are many obscure references.
An unquenchable fire in your heart Yet held at bay by the confinements of failure
I yearn to learn what I do not live, knowing it will never all be known. I flee to see what I have not, knowing it will never all be seen. I keel to feel what experience brings; knowing it will never all be felt.
The sound of laughter Helped me realize my dream. I want to save lives.
I only see you in my dreams though I look for you always when I'm walking down the street and in every crowd I look out hoping to see your face (dreading actually seeing you,
Don't give up, on your dreams. Hold your breath, count to 3. Close your eyes, sound asleep. Watch you go, on your run. Don't let anyone. Don't let anyone tell you.
In honor of MLK day, I wrote this poem. He had a dream for us, and now it is our turn to make his dream a reality. R.I.P. to MLK and his queen, Coretta...this poem is for you...
Look Up And see the big red building spreading out in front of you like a horizon begging you to reach out and touch it. Home. And you stand
Pencil to paper, Lead into words. Words into mind, Mind into birds. These birds take off and fling into dreams; Dreams that inspire, Strewn into steam; The steam of my efforts.
Of all the billions of people He chose me He made me love him He made me trust him He made me believe I could get better He listened, he did not judge me He fixed me
I keep myself in a notebook under my bed. I think in song. I dream in poems. I believe in incohesive pictures flashing a mile per minute. Like speeding cars on a highway,
Raw emotion pours from my soul. Like a winding road, it cannot be defined by a straight line. It turns, then rises. Veers, then dips.
As one of those who comes and goes,and tries to keep her smile,she sees the world for what it iswith optimistic eyes.Art keeps her worried mind at ease
They see youBut theydontseeYOUYou smile and laugh unawareYour eyes, your smile, your faceThats all they need to seeSome stare.Others ignore.But nobody knowsWhat you feel
Every night, she dreams about her love.
Dream, dream, dream, I wanna be a dreamer Keep, keep, keep on stitchin up the seams so I wanna say goodbye, I never got the chance
Dream, dream, dream, I wanna be a dreamer Keep, keep, keep on stitchin up the seams so I wanna say goodbye, I never got the chance
In my dream, you walked beside me Along soft breeze and rolling sea At sunrise, waves of sand churned free Filling my heart with bliss and glee
I keep having dreams about you because in my dreams you would answer me every night, without fail I keep having dreams about you because you'd reply
the summer sun could not shine as brightly as you do when we're laughing together
as i swam across the atlantic a fish stopped me
You're not happy in your
I am young and full of talent,
Black atmosphere, purple park on fire my flesh desired Black spiked hair with a bruised face stepping, grass crunching, heart race
“Lucky” One day at school hands shot up across the room, for show and tell. Lailah went to Disney world. She had her mouse ear cap on and pictures glued to a piece
Looking up into the sky into the endless blue seeing all the clouds passing by the green balloon bright and new The little girl was shining with glee this was pur happiness
They say... That friendship lasts forever,
They call me a dreamer,
I had a dream- that I woke up and everything was lovely.
As I lie in bed, With a pillow under my head; Being me, No one can see, So what can I be? Making decision, Is like making crucial incisions;
I wish I would of known this before, to save myself from your door. But we all have lessons to learn, even if we get a minor burn. Like Martin Luther King, I gave you my rights and everything.
Use your creativity Make your dreams become reality As I go throughout my journey I will learn new things My insight will become clearer Dreams are and can be intellectual But anybody can dream Like Martin
A dream is not something to take lightly A dream is not something to parade around A dream is something to hold close to your heart for fear someone may steal it A dream is something your heart knows you need
I've become so numb Nothing left to feel Who am I? Sleepless nights & nightmares at day What have I become? Life has morphed into a dizzy dream Tossing and turning to get through
Born somewhere Don't know how to spell the fucking place Grew up in Texas Figured my life would be here Case made Nothing but America in my trace No! No! No! Can't go to college 'cause you a fake
So many choices. Are there? Can we live just anywhere? Or must we share the hidden fear Of those who made us travel here?
Won't you stay the night? To call me your "short-haired beauty" again. To stay up all night with me and talk. To tell me things of your past, present, and future. To hug me, maybe kiss me.
My soul succumbs
To dream is once yet a word To me it means more than the world A vision, a goal
Young minds, Greater minds Sometimes a little hard to find Steadfast and they infuse Thoughts full of voice and and full of virtue Young Dreamers, Eyes open Always awake to this world, Never miss a moment
I am body and my body is bone And in this body, my mind makes its home Ask me, tell me, teach me, it rushes
Dear Mom, Hi. Wow. This is Hard.
I went to a place, A far, far away land. A land, filled with wonders. No, not Narnia. That one's next. No, I went to a better place. A land with a captain and a hook, A crocodile and a clock,
Why do you say I can’t go to a college? So because I was not born in this country? This is unfair! what about all my knowledge?
I ran. As fast as I could. To try to get away from him. From the hurt. But he always found me. I screamed. I ran the other way. But I found myself in the end back in his house.
I am a fixer,
I dream, One day you would want me. One day you would notice me. One day you would forget work. One day you would write me. One day you would study me. One day you would intice me,
Belladonna A beauty that illuminates such carnation hue You defiled me with your sinful pleasure
A kiss is just a kiss Until you find the one you love, A hug is just a hug Until you find the one you're always thinking of. A dream is just a dream Until it comes true, Love was just a word
A dream. Something I came up with. It came from my imagination. A fantasy. Can it be real? Something I can touch. It came from the earth. A reality. A lie.
Playing Paul VI. Camden Catholic's biggest rival. Down 52-50 with 20 seconds remaining. Cole steps onto the court playing in his first playoff game. He rubs his hands along the back of his shoes to remove the dust and quickly squeaks his shoes.
Drowning in flowers, Swimming in weeds I dive deep into an endless abyss of imagination, creation and all that is my inspiration. I don't know where I am going But I know it will be greem.
Insanity is near,I can feel it with every tear. I'm waiting for the time to be just right, For the come of the rabbit that is snow white.
Slaying privateers with my blunderbuss, The queen's lap dogs surrendering without a fuss,-- Remember this for the test: PV=nRT-- I took their ship, not caring if I was brusk. I can't seem to shake her.
It's so cold here, is this what it's like, to know I'm done and through, imminent end in sight? ~ I can't see, feeling this tingle in my fingertips, Is this what it's like, to lose my grip? ~
I'm finally here Right where I want to be It seems as if it has taken forever For me to see so clear But here I am A college student Making her way through classrooms and side walks
Oh the time of time in a timeless time where not a care lingers 'round we leave ourselves and become someone else and imagination goes unbound
Imagination, set me free Take me far from here Set me high up in a tree Give me the chance to disappear I’m going to swim across the sea I wanna fly high off the ground
I see nothing Nothing but her I just stare And she’s beautiful Her soft eyes stare cautiously And her hair falls It’s always falling Soft skin Pure- not a flaw
The history of our ancestors have been painted on the walls of the earth/ Painted by war, painted by death, but hopefully these paintbrush strokes by God’s right hand may color life onto our canvass/
LIFE, SUCH A STRONG WORD THAT GET'S TOSSED LIKE PAPER BALLS IN THE TRASH DURING CLASS. LOVE, A FOUR LETTER WORD THAT IS USED FOR MANY PURPOSES BOTH GOOD AND BAD BUT YET HEALS AND HURTS MANY SOULS.
This life is such a chore All I ever wanted was to be more More than just another one Who goes through life and then is done I wanted to be the one that fights To hold up what is true and right
Let's go to a dream world, let's lay in the imaginary grasslands. Lay your hair amongst the wildflowers, and look above at the many hands, our hands, and hands of centuries, reaching towards the sky,
Reality is distant as a dream/Images become harder to procure/Shattering reailty at the seams./When the old ones continue to endure,/Seeing the shadow of a missed smile,/Wishful thinking wasted on times long gone,/Easily lost like sun on a dial/Li
Living this life teaches more than the books. Loving to lust, that gets us hooked. Liking the guy, wanting his touch, your parents find out and think you’re doing too much. They instill fear just to achieve power.
Wanting to fulfill a dream is more than just dreaming. You got to act, innovate and create. Things just don't come when you lay in your bed, They come when that knowledge is being used in your head.
A warming smile, an enchanting laugh. A crumbling sensation within the realms of my soul. He was the stars that lit up my body, yet the un-denying darkness that consumed my heart.
You like me, I like you. We got together, And I'm happy 'cause it's true. You see me, And I see you. Both of us smile 'Cause it's what we always do. When I kiss you,
Each day prepares us For that furture we strive for The blood, sweat and tears Proof of all our endeavours Waiting for the day when our passion and career are finally one
Can you withstand the Barrage of false hopes, crumbling Promises, and dying dreams Pressed upon you each day
Teachers yell and scream students trying the chase their dreams noone by their side kids asking why Teachers don't undestand why no work is getting done all you hear is blame
I fell in love when I first saw you, Though now you are a hazy shape. I fell in love when I first spoke to you, Even as you faded away. Though we are worlds apart, And we may never meet.
In the darkness of the room I hear your still, cold breaths I hold a candle light infront of my broken body I uncover the mask you hide behind Discovering something wild You are standing there
What are dreams? Childish fantasies come alight? the fabric of imagination - a seam? Are they tears of the moon? the effects of a fever? hallucinations that have bloomed?
To dream is to know to believe to hope. To dream is to imagine to wonder of lands beyond your own. To dream is to love with unfailing bound.
you caught me upon a fallen starand wished me away to thedesert Mars. A dead plain with foreign menof simple things in a nightmare, awaken me to humanity.
Soft skin grazes, touches, kisses the curves so gently it almost misses but my electric skin knows, feels yours. Shocks of the-best-thing-ever course through my body,
I cannot walk down the street Or I can I just choose not to, Because why would you Walk in a place where your skin is your identity And your rights are engraved in your pigment
I arrived out of the dark night Runnin', runnin' Runnin' for my life, I saw left I saw right I forgot what was right Then I decided to go left Going left was going deaf
Most of you think that we dont belong to a world like yours. That we should go back, and never come back. Most of you think that we dont have the right to be free, to work and to talk, like you do.
Sometimes I wake up by the door & catch me waiting for you, even when I know you won't be there. It's this hope that I hold, that one day you will be standing at my door.
I slowly walk home day after day— taking in the sounds of strangers. Men and women—that spend their lives in a constant hurry, a constant mess, a constant disarray. Living for the American Dream,
Destroyed from the inside out,A tragedy sinners do not mourn.No pity for a star. Here bright and burning,Here dark and cold,Alive as a star,Dead as a star.
Will that be far enough for you? If I go to Greece and am INSPIRED Will that inspire you? If I find my DREAM in France Will that convince you? If I LIVE my dream in China
I looked in the mirror and saw a little girl, who could it be? could it be me? And that little girl had dreams and hopes but those dreams turn into a fantasy And those hope started to fade away;
You missed it, everything looks wrong, that there doesn't fit, the moments gone. The angles off, the flash is too bright,
Have you ever seen eyes that speak sermons.Respirations that birth holy spirits.With those kind of eyelids that are like curtains,Blocking out sunlight that flowers cherish.
I have no room to judge Living on the street, they never seem to budge Living off a dollar or a penny Everyone's afraid to give Thinking that people gone spend it on henny But that's how they learned to live
If I could but for one moment keep at bay the pain, the suffering, the sorrow If I could but for one moment Still the tempest Bring back the blush of life into the cold pale faces
Imagination is a place, completely up to you, You can live in a tall brick house, or sleep in an old shoe. You can make an entire world, or maybe just a street,
Your panting, screaming, something’s coming, but you cannot tell what, You run into a new room, and make sure the door is shut. You think of what could be chasing, hidden from afar,
Remember the time when nothing went wrong ? You went through the day like a endless song ? Now you're confused and you can't find your way Why does it always have to result in this ?
In the winter, cold and bleak, I sat upon my window seat. Looking out into the world, I saw a bird perched in the snow. No doubt this bird was wishing for a drop of gold,
Rewind back to a time... Back to a time when things Were slow and serene. Back to a time when I had a dream Was more than a tweet... It meant something. Make no mistake-
Dream Big Dream Small Dream through it all Through the easy and the rough, Even if it becomes very tough Doesn't matter what your dream is. Dream on, Dream on. Mr. King had a Dream
I always knew there were demons out there, You tried so hard to lock them
everday I wonder what i'll do next if i will take another step closer to my dreams in a world full of uncertanty I must keep dreaming that one day my dream will come true
Liberation is like a ringing in your ear. Silence is like the golden sun. My friendship lasts like tree trunks. My pain is exhausted wildfire. Understanding is my unlocking key, and compassion is my locket.
I was cold and feared nothing. I wait for death because I feel nothing. Thought I hated everything and love nothing. She cracked into my heart of stone now I feel something.
I can see, but I am blind. I can hear, though I am deaf. I can speak, yet I am mute. I find myself wandering, like a spirit, Walking the same path over. I cannot tell if a dream has taken me
A broken heart is like a broken dreamA wold left cold as stoneA place of darkness never to be seenI see you walk away as tears fill my eyesThis is a world where love can never survive
I can feel it, you know. the names and the lies -she's nothing- they say -fat, ugly, stupid and dry- but they whisper it you see so I guess that makes better especially when they're nice to my face
I knew where I was headed, Lost in thought, nose in a book: Dragons, fairies, elves and sugar plum days. Every thought, every move.
What sly, sneaky dogs gentleman can be,disguising themselves to others to have a sort of innocent fluency. But what man can truly stand with his girl and not look at another,or struggle not to?
Ode to the man with two jobs In public he smiles, but alone he sobs Working hard for nothing Only seeking for a little something His wife works too But this is nothing new Always worrying about rent
How can you have hate For the color of my skin I've done nothing wrong Is me living life a sin I'm a person, a human Like each and every one of you I've done nothing to harm
I think I saw a robbery today.A man just fiddling with the door.He looked at me watching,I know he saw. He looked me in the eyesI just stood there frozenI knew what he was thinking.I was going to die.
Pitter Patter on the floor Tiny hands examine the cracked and worn door Tiny hands grab hold of my flustered heart and input fragmented memories A burst of light in the dark Explode out of my soul and into my lungs
