Close Your Eyes-Dream

Close Your Eyes-Dream

A Poem by Chloe..Across the Universe
"

<3

"
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
see-

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
carry
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-

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(:

Chloe- nice piece here. I'm sure both Mr. Lennon and Mr. Lenin would appreciate this idealogically at least. your lyric
"Money is of no worry everybody shares.." will have the commie haters reaching for their guns.

I like how you conjure a dream which is unclothed of all the negativity in our western world. It sounds like a dream of environmental philosophers, almost instrumental, while enriching its own perspective. I especially liked this, great lines: "Can you see?
war machines stripped and sold
for scrap metal
to make music for the soul " - there is some wonderful alliteration and onomatopoeia, the formation of a word from a sound associated with what is named for your literary effect.

Also, I liked: "Money is of no worry / everybody shares.. /no one is too heafy to / carry "----- such a
creator you are, this testifies the fact.

The poem begins on a seemingly unsmiling observations of the world around us - but they made a nice twist, turning the poem into a wish, using gentle elements.Wonderfully done, Chloe, I really liked it.

Your poem is like a prayer. A very good and hopeful way to look at his world. Sad part so much good is being done and cannot be seen because of the news telling of bad things only. Many kind and hopeful people in this world. We need more of them. A excellent poem.
