************DISCLAIMER TO THE READER************

These words are written with no distaste or disrespect. These words are written specifically for me. And if they're read by your mind, just remember, they weren't written with any particular audience in mind. The YOU is not you, the he is not him, and the she is not her. These words are simply my imagination at work. If you dislike, or disagree, it doesn't even matter to me. You are merely more than a distraction to me, if you have negativity for me. Say something, say nothing, it doesn't matter to me. You might be able to beat me up, but you'll never conquer my mind. My ideologies are present at times, but i push them on no one, at any time. The characters in my lines may be fictitious, or possibly may not be. Either way, I'll never succumb to your questions, so don't bother me. I won't explain anything I've ever said in words. You either get it or you don't. But don't ever ask me what anything means. I know what ALL of it means, and that's ALL that matters to me...

Read on if you want, let your mind mingle with mine. Or save yourself from these words, before they enter your mind. I cannot guarantee these words will stimulate your brain, but I can guarantee that these words are 100% mine. Never copied, borrowed, stolen, or plagiarized. This is stuff thats's extracted from different depths within me. Sometimes shallow, sometimes deep, sometimes without beginnings or endings, but all of it comes from me. Derived from love, from pain, from those that get inside of me. And what's left on this page, was once a thought, sight, or feeling. Channeled through my body, my nerves, to the tip of my hand, ending as ink on this page, leaving me with either a smile, or a straight face...

So go on, to the next page, or just go away...

The Dreamer In Me...

This is written to My Parents. My Sisters. The People I Love, and The People That Love Me. This is written to the Senate, the Legislature, the House of Representatives. This is written to Governors, Mayors, and Elected Officials of Every Level.  This is written to the Judicial branch as well. This is written to the President.  This is written to the Generals, and The Leaders of EVERY Nation.  This is written to the Dictators of Minds, Hearts, and Nations.  This is written to the Good, the Evil.  This is written to God.  This is written to all those that Love God.  This is written to all those that oppose God.  This is written to men, women, and children….of every nation.  This is written as my dream.  When I was a child, my mother told me dreams come true….THIS….is written to you…

Today's my birthday, and I'm gonna dream. I'm gonna dream for everyone else, and not for me. I'm gonna start with little dreams, and then expand them to cover the globe. I'm gonna dream from simple to complex, and from high to low. I'm gonna dream of the basics, and mix in more as I go…

So...Here I go...

To my parents...I wish you love and peace.  I respect no one on this earth, more than I respect you two...

To my dad, I dream of a country, where companies don't collapse, where pensions aren't just a probability, but rather a promise. I dream of a land, where years of service to his country, don't leave him empty handed.  I dream that every time your plane takes off, God will return you safely to your family.  I dream of raising kids with the same integrity you taught me.  I dream that one day, I will love a woman, the way that you love my mother.  I dream of my Nana, and the day we'll all see her again….

To my mom, I dream of love, I dream of health, and a world that's cancer free. I dream that the pain you've been dealt has been doubled by the joy you've seen.  I dream that the love from your hugs could spread over this whole globe, to every man, woman, and child of every color and creed.  I dream…that one day, a woman will love me…the way that you love my father. I dream of the day, you reunite with grandpa Lewis, and see that twinkle in his eye...

To my sisters...

I love you both. I dream of a park, where we can walk, and hold hands, and remember when we were kids. I dream of dreams, that's still live in the both of you, and me…

To my sister Jami, I dream of your passion for your career. I dream you will reach autistic kids far and near. I dream your work, and your ethics, will change the way we care for the children everywhere.  I dream that your office, will multiply in growth, every year. I dream you will chase your dreams, and take Scott with you everywhere…

To my sister Katie...you are my soft spot. I love you more than words could ever say. I love you while these tears mark my face. I admire your strength, and your fortitude, and I dream that you'll always chase your dreams.  I dream that your twin boys will grow, to see the value in me. I dream that you will instill dreams, in those precious boys every day, just like God has done in me.  And I dream, that you will always fight, to be the best mom that you can be.  I dream that you will chase your dreams, and take Kris with you everywhere…

I dream that sleepless strangers in Seattle sleep well tonight. I dream that doctors make breakthroughs in medical technology, and reverse the progression of poison and deterioration in the body.  I dream that the things that matter, consume the mind, and I dream…that all the rest, doesn’t matter to you or me.  I dream that you find true love, and face it happily…I dream…that I’ll accept that YOUR dreams, don’t always align with mine…

I dream...that I'll reconcile with the skeleton in me. I have a dream, that I'll reach out to everyone, that opposes me. I dream, that those that turned on me, will face me, and love me, as human beings. I dream, that these dreams, don't die as dreams, but rather actual moments and memories…

And here we sit, where my dreams stack up like Jets on the runway...you want to see them take off?....sit back, and fasten your seat belt...and close your eyes, for more oxygen...

I dream of dignity and courage, mixed with more union, and less treason.  I dream that bumblebees transfer love pollen from you to me, and stir emotions that otherwise sit dormant from the summer season to the winter freezing…

To The President, and the Leaders of the World…

I have a dream…

I have a dream…that our children not only dream, but set goals and achieve.  I have a dream, that our children will trade drugs and teen pregnancy for dreams.  I have a dream, that all love could be extreme, rather than simple and na├»ve.  I have a dream, that I could influence the hearts, of ALL human beings…

I have a dream…that we will reform education, everywhere.  I have a dream, that we will wage war on drugs and poverty, unemployment, and economic instability.  I dream of a country, where our production of exports establishes our county as permanent.  I have a dream…where corporate propaganda doesn’t hurt the American citizens, and jobs aren’t outsourced to other countries.  I have a dream, where we the people of this world, combine minds, and create solutions, so we don’t have to depend on crude oil and gasoline…

I dream of peace.  A land of happiness, where all humans alike hold hands.  Where we don’t use politics and words, to wage wars, over resources and land.  I dream of diplomacy, that mends minds, rather than bends ties.  I have a dream, where the color of the heart, matches the same color and content of the mind.  I dream of a day, where truth and integrity overcome deception, as the human way.  Where we go back to the history of this great nation, and embrace the principals we were founded on…

I have a dream, where the children of third world nations, eat as often as the industrial and wealthy nations.  I have a dream, where God’s hands unite the people of the world, in large and small nations.  I have a dream, where natural disasters take only our attention, and not our women and children…

I have a dream, where war is never the answer…I have a dream, where we wage war….ON WAR. 

I have a dream, where bombs and nuclear weapons are not built, but rather disarmed, broken, and dismantled.  I have a dream, where the color of skin, is something we don’t even see.  I have a dream, where instead of asking what race you are, we ask…why should it even matter to you or me.  I have a dream…where every man, woman, and child has the opportunity for education and a degree…

I have a dream…I have these dreams often, these dreams NEVER go away…

I have a dream, that the children of today, will not be the criminals of tomorrow, but rather the generation that leads us out of this divided depression.  I have a dream, that the parents of today, will build the leaders of tomorrow…

I have a dream…that Martin Luther King Jr’s dream…will be a FOREVER LEGACY.  I have a dream…that our generation, will add to his dream.  I have a dream…that the leader in ALL of us will lead the way.

These dreams are not for me, but are everything to me...I have a dream…that one day,  there will no longer be segregation, and separation, but rather love and  equal contribution.  I dream that corruption within government and nations will wash away, because of the hard work of humanitarians that won’t settle for disaster.  I dream that clean water, and medicine will save lives in every nation.  I dream, that the ability to read and write will not only be available to everyone, but taught TO everyone, by everyone.  I dream, that we will ALL recognize that we are ALL teachers to each other.  I dream that we will combine hands, combine hearts, and combine minds, remembering that we’re all cut from the same cloth…

I dream, all those that hate, will replace that feeling with love and grace.  I dream….that with enough prayer, enough practice, enough faith, and enough character, these dreams can become realities within the lives of you and me.  I dream that my voice will turn one head, and one head will tell one friend, and that reaction will travel to the news stations of every nation.  And I dream that when we hold hands, we can travel to the steps of the capitol, with a voice so loud, that we will no longer have to hold signs up or shout, because the infection of laughter and happiness will collect hearts from around the world… 

I dream that bombs and grenades will be traded for books and love letters.  I dream that the broken will become the healed, and the lovers will charge forward as the teachers.  I dream that a smile can heal broken lives, and broken minds.  I believe that the forests, and the animals of this earth, have a higher value than slaughter.  I dream that children, are the true teachers, when given the right guidance, and adults are the outlet, to water these seeds.  I believe that the roots of this Earth, carry the burden of our feet, and I dream everyday that we change that before it’s too late.  I dream that we replenish and seed this Earth, rather than just pluck and strip her.  I dream that innovation,  and creation, can change the direction, of any mistake, and that it’s NOT too late…

I dream, that we will give of our mind, our heart, and our time.  I dream that we will teach love, regardless of faith or denomination.  I dream…constantly.  I dream to escape reality. 

When I was a child…my mother told me dreams come true, and I believe that my mother told me the truth.  These are my dreams…and every single day….

I STILL dream….that they will come true….

  1. A mother always tells the truth and teaches her children to love with abandon and live life to the best of their being. "Those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind. Surround yourself with the people in your life that really matter and leave the rest to their own. You have profound wisdom and the capability to live by your convictions. Thanks for all your insights.
