It was only a Dream, so when you wake up don't scream!

I woke up on a sad note,
the devil was trying to block my vote.
What is it about dreams,
which at times continue to give nightmare screams?
Lets see now, I made it through the day,
in my usual happy go lucky way.
But when I close my eyes,
my life turns to nightmare cries.
Sometimes in my dreams I'll be struggling to survive,
and this is no jive.

But I refuse to be beat down,
so I have this habit of going back to sleep to take the devil to the ground,
and if I don't achieve my goal,
when I awake I keep a more positive strong hold.

I'm not going to lose in my dreams and in real life,
I might lose control of my dream strife,
but after I awake,
I've learned to give myself a break.

It was only a dream,
it might have came in on a moon beam,
but It will go out on a strong positive scheme.
I got no time to be getting my butt beat,
or meeting defeat,
in real life and the dream world.

In life and in the dream world it's not the nightmare or the problem that's important, it's the fight that you put up that counts most. I fight like hell in real life to have my way and in the dream world. I refuse to be beat down by anything or anybody.

It's the attitude.

You'll find that a lot of things come and go, even our health, but if you have a strong positive attitude, you can take it to the grave with you. Then after you die it will crawl out of the ground and kick butt.

I love the repeated theme of the dream you weave throughout this. Excellent rhyme too.
You'll find that a lot of things come and go, even our health, but if you have a strong positive attitude, you can take it to the grave with you. Then after you die it will crawl out of the ground and kick butt.
This stanza made me smile and was a solid end.
Nicely done.
