Awake, O Dreamer!

Why so restless, sleeping one?

What is it you’re looking for?

Are you reaching outside of yourself – racing toward a mirage on the horizon?

Grasping at the illusions, the shifting forms around you?

Did you think that a love affair, or a winning lottery ticket

Could satisfy this longing?

Awake, O Dreamer!

What are you waiting for?

Are you awaiting the big bang, the starting gun?

A great opportunity? A great disaster?

Do you want riots and revolution?

Are you waiting for earthquakes and tidal waves?

The big war? The big bomb?

The great depression? The great collapse?

Are you waiting for the great-big-apocalyptic-fill-in-the-fucking-blank?

Awake, O Dreamer!

What are you waiting for?

Are you waiting for the sword of Grace to sever the ties that bind you?

Then let this poem be the blade you use

To cut through the web of lies

You’ve woven about yourself.

Awake, O Dreamer!

Now is the time –

This is the moment you’ve been waiting for

Your whole life.
