Dreams are somtimes more than one can bare



Dark was the December night


and to my sleep went forth I.


yet  sleep, I did not,


for slumber brought forth plight.


For,


In and out of torrid dreams went I


Chasing fear, fleeing fright.


Scaling walls that did not exist,


Seeking a presence of mind to resist.


Yet failure was mine


As horrid events


 Persistently filled my wits.


 I dreamt of wars full of destruction,


I could hear the somber crying of children


I could smell the smoke, as skyward it rose


I could taste the devastation


Of battles fought.


Alas though


 from this cruel and relentless night I awoke


  with all clarity, I recall the dying,


I still felt mourning throughout our land.


All this thought I,


As I shook and trembled,


Is the doing of the madness in man.


 Dear God I prayed,


Remove these dreams from this December night


And restore peace to this day.


For I am weak and unable to stand,


Bearing these visions of the destruction


Of man.

 Taken from an actual dream that I had in December of 2000


I left out a large portion of the notes I had taken, for the sake of brevity.


We all need to unite for the sake of peace, for death and destruction, really


Is more than I can stand.


~PEACE~
