Set Fire To Your Dreams

by Ares   Feb 28, 2013

On top, down low.
I'm stuck, you know.
Breathe in,
Throw out,
The core.

Beat down, stay up.
Empty, your cup.
Roll over,
Your idols.
Use them up,

Play out, let in.
Get drunk, then sin.
Set fire,
To your dreams.
Reverse your speech,
Then win.

I don't usually add notes in a poem, but I would like to specify that this is a spoken-word piece I am doing for the debut album of my band, The Bakermen. For this reason, it may be a bit odd for those expecting a standard poem.

    It was the title that grabbed me (which I like). I like choppy poems, I'd love to hear this as you intend it to sound :)
