The Dreams Of My Father

Dance with eternity
Chortled my master
Dance…

But I said no
and woke up

I heard him beckon
But he was drowned out
By the noise of my Father

Time to get ready

Swim to the sky
I heard showered above me
Swim…

But I said no
and dried off

I felt her beckon
But her words were devoured
By the mouth of my Father

Time to get going

Nourish your world
Growled within me
Nourish…

But I said no
and muzzled the hunger

I heard him beckon
But he was broken
By the fists of my Father

Time to get working

Rest the hands
My mind beseeched
Rest…

But I said no
and worked harder

I felt her beckon
But she was damned
By the words of my Father

Time to get wasted

Strengthen your soul
Preached the bum on the corner
Strengthen…

But I said no
and ignored my spirit

I heard him beckon
But he was destroyed
By the hate from my Father

Time to get dinner

Love me tonight
Whispered the woman beside me
Love…

But I said no
and prayed heed to my master

I felt her beckon
But she faded away
In the dreams of my Father

  1. This is overall quite nice, although I’m not quite sure how to interpret the overall meaning. I’m glad you nixed the rhyming scheme on this one.
