Dream With Me

The wind blows beneath me
And though I can't be sure
It takes my breath away
I silently float away

I look down to the earth
Watching people live their lives
Humanity takes its turn
Watch as humanity takes its turn

The light shines brightly
As i fly closer toward the sun
Mother nature, so pristine
God's creations, so pristine

Dream with me, a dream
Of natural, logical unity
Come together, all as one
Live in peace, for once, as one

(and in this dream)

Leaders perish while others
Rise to power in their place
he says,"Together, we can change."
"Come together and come for change."

America has lost its beauty
While other nations plead for help
screaming,"Help us live in light!"
"Savior, lead us to the light!"

The visions in my mind
So vivid in all ways
I'm scared to look away
Oh, but I wish to look away

The light has darkened now
as my eyes slowly open
Was all that just a dream?
Oh, i hope it's just a dream...

I thought the running theme of the dream was great, but the part about America sort of jumped out, could have flowed a little better into the poem. But this really is beautiful, great job!

I like the way you use repetition, through epiphoras, to create a sense of constant pain. Good job.

I like the poem a lot, especially the sense of repetition created at the end of each stanza. Nice job!

this is really creative, imaginative, and kind of prophetic- like those cool sci-fi movies where people want to search for a better life. Check out mine- A Dream Regained and Garden

:] i like it.

it's rather inspiring,

i like the way you illuminate how discouraging the world's multiplying issues can be while we are constantly reminded to fix them, with the line "Oh, but I wish to look away".
