The Limits of Dreams (a poem)

I feel like what we’re hearing is to hunt down dreams like game
The bloodier, the better, show the challenge of the gain
Rise up in the ranks, don’t write “potential” on your grave
Leave it all out on the field don’t let an ounce be saved

They say “embrace ambition,” and sure part of that sounds good
But maybe there is something more than “hustle til you’re dead”
It all sounds sort of stressful when the truth is I want peace
A day of honest work and then a restful night of sleep

I’m not here to burn out or to idolize my dreams
There’s more to life than passion or a certain fantasy
Serve the Lord with all your heart, then sit back and just breathe
Go chase down a dream or two, then love your family.

The Things They Said That I Could Have (a poem)

The things they said that I could have
Enthralled me for a time
The things they said that I could have would
Dominate my mind

The things they said that I could have (gave)
Dopamine galore
The things they said that I could have
I kept on wanting more

The things they said that I could have
I Lusted after, chased
The things they said that I could have
Can feel like such a waste

The things they said that I could have
The gains that I could get
The things they said that I could have
Have left me with regret

With endless opportunities
The thing that’s most ironic
The world is mine for taking
And mostly I don’t want it

Liberty Is Rising (A Poem)

Liberty is rising
We break free of the choke
Lines were crossed too many times
The sleeping bear was poked

Freedom’s on the comeback
The values that we hold
Everytime they’re violated
Backlash is 10 fold

Once a ragged army
Disheveled and divided
We boldly stand together and
Refuse to be gaslighted

Liberty is rising
The sound of Gadsden’s rattle
Swords up and keep fighting
Go and take the battle

Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ has made us free.” -Galatians 5:1
