poem- swimming against the current August 2, 2013

I dive into a dream

through sloughs of doubtful inheritance

with sure strokes I slice the pool

of the possibility.

Doubts ride the boat beside me

but I swim in imagination

toward the shore of a tomorrow

where anything

can be

  5. only if the Captain knew where I was heading…
    A place of new possibilities
    sedate my soul with lovely tunes,
    i got to accept the harsh waves that pushes me to the edge
    As long as I understand…I’ll reach my destination
    Patience is my only virtue
    Thank you.
