Close Your Eyes-Dream

Close Your Eyes-Dream

A Poem by Chloe..Across the Universe


In this world where life is
perilous each day a gamble
from children shooting children
while learning the golden rule..

I often wonder-
could it be that we
have become apathetic
turned a blind eye
we need to open our eyes

I like to think of a world
filled with love-
love of people, animals, places..plants-
moons, stars, planets.. ours
first Mistress Earth

Can you close your eyes
see a world of love without
endless misery

War- extinct like the dinosaurs
hunger a thing long gone
religion all of ones choosing

Can you see?
a world where our children
live free in peace
no hunger or pain

Can you see?
war machines stripped and sold
for scrap metal
to make music for the soul

Money is of no worry
everybody shares..
no one is too heavy to
no burden to bear

Can you see?
a dream, perhaps 
to dream the impossible dream
it is possible-if we all dream the same
dream together-

Please, won't you close your eyes-
dream with me-

based loosely on the beautiful song, "Imagine"
Thank you Serah and Emmah , an honor for me
This poem means much to me, i believe it will happen
someday if we ... the if, can all get along - sharing, caring and
remembering we are all one.

Wow, Imagine is what I thought of when I read this.
I thought, "She's the next John Lennon. Well, maybe a female-version."
If your dreamworld became our reality, I would never again shed a tear.
Heck, I don't think there'd be any reason whatsoever to shed tears, unless they were tears of the purest joy.

I truly love this poem. If it were a person, it'd be my best friend.
Excellent work(:

When I look at the world sometimes, I half close my eyes, and cross them slightly..In that physical state, I see things differently than they appear.
I get in the zone..then I can "see"
This is a beautiful poem, that reminds me of that...thank you for sharing it.

This is possible..just have to come together and all want seems impossible because we believe that we are separated..wonderful sentiment..thought provoking..and put a smile on my face.. classic

a stark and relevant piece, wonderfully delivered with a camp sense of emotion and failure all rolled into one, well done, a great read.
