Pieces of Peace

The blue prints for dreaming up the impossible are folded and hidden in my mind
Barricaded by a million peace treaties left unsigned
Trapped by a cage made of corpses of a world gone blind.

These latent thoughts speak to me at night
Those blue prints unravel in my dreams and come alive
Shining bright, white lights into the black night sky
I begin to believe peace has at last arrived.

At the stroke of seven, my alarm clock goes off
The disconcerting noise of a farmhouse terminates my wishful thoughts
Forcing me to flee a world, one I have always sought.

You were born an origanal why die a copy?The secret to success is the consistency to pursue.To the world you may be one person,but to one person you may be the world.To receive the right answer,you must ask the right question.Don't worry be happy! :)

Beautiful poem. It's very passionate and I really enjoyed! I love how you broke out of the every other line rhyme pattern and made it your own! You have great talent, never doubt that!

I like how you used the word blueprints. It's ironic how blueprints can be used to construct dreams and at the same time to construct disasters. Very deep poem.
