Dreams in the Mirror: Part 5

So there’s no turning back now
When I got my feet on solid ground
A stable state of mind found
To use love to fuel me forward
And move humanity’s ideals toward
An ever brighter future
Where we can still nurture
Our minds along with the next generation
It’s up to us to inspire the young in this nation

With so much waste and so much marketing
It becomes harder and harder to breathe and to sing
Fast paced lives close but disconnected
Bring a sense of anxiety constantly directed
At what people think they want to see
Let’s drop the bullshit, take a step back from philosophy
And look up at the stars
Shining bright from afar
A mysterious blessing that makes life not seem so hard
These lights seen wherever you are

Next: Part 6 – 8/5/2014


Dreams in the Mirror is a 10 part series. It began as a short bit I wrote while venting about self-directed frustrations. During my recent Spring semester, I had gotten lazy with my studies and personal projects. Feeling extremely dissatisfied, I processed my feelings through writing what is now Part 1. Several months later, after the semester had ended, I now find myself commuting to my dream job. During my work-bound train-rides I have downtime to think and to write. I came across Part 1 and began writing responses. The subsequent 9 parts are all focused on answering the frustrations of my past and building hope for the future. This piece has been fundamental in my recent mindset toward life and I’m very happy that I have the ability to share it with the world.
