Wishes wasted on what-nots and
Wing-dings wear away in time,
While fabulous fantasies of futures
filled with wondrous windows of
opportunities allow for nothing
Instead innocence insulates believers,
inspiring individuals to dream devilish
dances, daydreams of defiance, dramatic
challenges coursing through lives
unbroken, undefiled by demons of despair,
hearts healed and whole withstanding
weather-related attacks against
Dream on, dreamers. Dance with the stars,
sending sparks spiraling through the universe,
understandably lighting lustrous lives
leavened by luminous love,
spirited souls searching for something
of substance, something to shatter
defamations and destroy doubters.
Give me guidance, goodness, graciousness,
generosity that I may share my successes, spreading
goodwill and good cheer whenever my tired feet tread.
Help hinder the disbelievers, doubters, nay-sayers,
never noticing nothing that threatens to toss around
their firmly held convictions, no matter how mundane,
Grant me the ability to appease, appreciate, applaud
those whose talents top mine, to see the dedication
and hard work woven into each wondrously crafted
creation, recognizing remarkable determination to succeed.
Allow me to march with those who mark places,
who work with the angels, who weave satisfying stories
and craft perfect poems, earning the everlasting
satisfaction of success.
These things I ask.
