Dreams in the Mirror: Part 7

I am my future self
Back from beyond to nurture my current health
See I got a track record of selfishness
But now you see, I got this wish
To change this world
And I can’t sit idle when there is
So much pain and suffering, how can one bear this

So instead I choose not to act witness
I choose to rise up past my failures
Cause the world itself deserves this
Abundance of people who see all the love
People who dream and can see up above
All this animosity and hatred thats brewing
Such monstrosities, what’s the point in doing
A thing when all around people killing and crying
Left and right
Somehow still sleeping at night
While civilians run in fright
Where has gone the light
Of Humanity
Can it be
That we can’t join in unity
Solidarity
I dare you and I dare me
To find somewhere that we agree

Next: Part 8 – 8/9/2014

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.
