The Dreamer

Poem By Steven G. Alston

Dare not dismiss the dreamer
He with his head in the clouds
As but a silly bumbling fool
An impractical simpleton who as a rule
Keeps his distance from the intelligent crowd
He sticks with Bulldog tenacity
To a great thought in his mind
The dreamer has a great capacity
To cope with words unkind
Thrown at him by doubters
Disbelievers and "friends"
Dare not dismiss the dreamer, he can't dismiss his dream

To Those Whe Went Before Us

Sometimes in our forgetfulness we attach too much
importance to ourselves.
We think too much about our own thoughts, our own ideas.
We think that before we came, nothing happened that had meaning.

Men Speak

Men speak of war, of conflict and racial strife
Of heartaches in abundance all the infirmities of life.
But the tounge is silent, no nothing can be heard
About he who helps his neighbor with a kind, considerate word.
