Burning

by Steven Craig


When you have the imagination to force the dream to last and linger
When you have the mind to focus attention on the real desire
You have the first steps to your new reality


We all dream our desires
Try to weave them into our dreams as we advance our days
There is always a repeating theme
Always a reoccurring need
That the mind takes and messes with just a little bit each time we close our eyes


Then

We wake
And find that the real thing in our life is not what the dream promised
On we dream relentlessly
On we hope the desire will be understood
Taken in hand by the one person that knows us


Knows you
That is the point that it all changes
Knowledge is the true power
And the true awaking from your dream to be who you are

Control is knowledge
It is the knowledge of why it is so needed
It makes the fire burn the flame that you play with

Burn life into every breath
Every pore
Every gasp
Every vision
Every touch
