The Wasteland of Dreams


We are all hamsters on a wheel,
trapped in this plastic world,
spinning to nowhere.


Like dust we settle in this town,
this comfortable reality,
the wasteland of dreams.


Our mind's a tumbleweed
floating along the plains
as the wind whistles
through our thoughts.


And our blood flows steady,
a calm ocean in our veins,
our heart pumping to stay alive,
and not much else.




Live more than to exist. 


Count your blessings.


Make your words important

and your actions matter.
Open your heart to love.


Learn to tolerate all
even those you hate.


By God, forgive above all else.


Shake off the dust
from your skin.


Free yourself
because no one else will.
