Rhyme Time

Unleash Your Inner Dream-Beast

Since it’s the beginning of a new year and a time when resolutions and plans for new and exciting beginnings are being made, I thought I’d share and inspirational poem for today’s Rhyme Time. I thought this particular poem by Mark C. Bird, uncomplicated and its rhythm catchy. But most of all I like this poem for its message. For someone who spends the better part of her day planning and strategizing to get a large yummy slice of life, this poem was truly inspirational. And even though people gape at me every time I tell them what my plans for the future are I’m even more sure that it’s a wonderful idea to learn to cut hair professionally while travelling the world and then open a coffee shope with book shelves for walls.

Unleash Your Inner Dream-Beast

If you have a dream

That won’t go away

That gnaws at your toes

With each waking day

That sings beneath notes

And swirls between stars

From lines it great books

It thrashes and gnarls

From cinema screensΒ 

It leaps along light

And twists your insides

And stalks you at night

Then give it attention

Tame that wild dream

It’s there for a reason

Yet to be seen

A beast of the future

Only you own

Don’t let it escape

Into the unknown

Train it with care

And boost its esteem

Spotlight it brightly

So it can be seen

Or dreams can turn nasty

Tire and groan

Diminishing creatures

If left all alone

The beast never dies

Just shrinks and goes cold

A lone, solemn dream

Growing weary and old

So feed it with strength

Believe that it’s real

Nurture with love

And trust how it feels

Fight the dream-bruisers

Wish-batterers too

And splatterers of hope

Who’ll be waiting for you

Feel the roar rumble

Hear every shout

It’s your beast of a dream

Just dying to get out

– Mark C. Bird
