Dreams in the Mirror: Part 8

I’m here now, call me Mr. President
There’s some things you need to know
As my aim’s to set a precedent
Of a new style of possible mindset
That beyond the pain life can get better yet
Though as fragile as it’ll ever be
Let’s be agile in acting preemptively
Finding value in our hearts
As well as in our trees
It’s never too late to start
I’m here to make you believe
That you can either inspire or you can grieve
About loss not yet incurred
Yet loss guarenteed
Any other outcome is absurd

So now is the time to make your voice heard
No not just yours
But ours
Speaking collectively
That love is what we really need

Love for the world
Love for the self
Love the birds
Love for the rest

Next: Part 9 – 8/11/2014

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.
