is there something missing…

is there something missing

have you found
your
dried tears
or
have they been
caught up
in the winds
of
time
circling
above
your tomorrows
but
falling
today
to blind you
like
an ocean fog
to
where
you are
or
could be

colorless future…

don’t see no rainbows
nothing but death’s cold gray sky
ain’t  pessimistic
just student of history
still waiting for that damn mule

 

a fanciful notion…

holding this dream
close
to my chest
no
need
to
show it to you
it’s
the same one
my
father’s
father had
and
i suspect
his father had
that
one day
every child
in
every nation
will wake up
and
be
able
to be
a child
