    DECIPHER MY DREAMS

    Can someone decipher my dreams for me?
    What are these dreams supposed to mean?

    I’m dreamin of blackwhiteblackwhite roses
    Hoverin above me as my heart composes
    A resting place for when my mind doses
    To remember God’s grace in all my proses

    I’m dreaming of ebony flavored summer days
    Filled with ebony marching people with their hearts ablaze

    Dreamin of a nice cool drink from the freedom fountain
    After the treacherous climb up freedom mountain

    I’m dreamin of cool hot warm sweet proclamations
    Of love while bent on slow soft
    Conversations
    With every person I meet
    And every word they say
    Drippin into me
    Fillin the questions inside of me
    Like a beautiful unified symphony

    Could you decipher this please?

    I sit and dream here of jet black trees and checkered flowers
    I can ponder their existence for hours and hours

    I’m dreamin of a where no laws had to be emancipated
    Everything by the black was appreciated

    I’m dreamin of a Pan africanistic soulful dance
    I watch the world together as they do the freedom prance
    With a nightly romance
    Taking peace by hand
    No color is ever glanced


    I dream of a place were the existence of today is like a breath of fresh air
    Has the fresh dip of cool cream coffee ice feeling here
    Nobody judgin’ nobody anywhere
    I whip myself through time until I'm barely there

    Barely there to wake up and remember the crime
    Barely there to know injustices done to my kind
    The hate that springs like milk mixed with bigot limes
    Makin limeade that took my people’s blood traded it for dimes*

    Do you know what this means?
    Can you decipher my dreams?

    When I’m livin in my dream
    You can catch me at a window
    Because I want to fly
    Right next to the sky
    And go higher than birds go high
    No one can catch me
    No one can see me
    I soar for the people who were made to die
    I stay forever asking why, why, why?

    When I dream I dream of lighting like a flame in the darkness
    There’s would be wind to expire me
    Cause lo and behold I would finally be free
    You would be free
    My soul would be free
    Finally I can run outside and be me
    Refreshingly
    Spiritually
    Consuming everything I can be

    When I dream, I dream of mind scribing
    I am taken still with pages
    Pages and pages of black leaders courageous
    And there are stages upon stages
    Of apologies
    From all the people who wronged us
    Our ancestry
    I say finally
    Some reciprocity
    Can I have the mule and forty acres please?
    Too bad too soon I woke up from this dream

    But I also dream of taking thoughts like I sip hot cocoa
    As my friend says it, no more livin La Vida loco
    Gave away the prize Gucci, donated those Manolo’s
    Figured hey I’ll give away my things
    Just to wear them freedom rings

    Had a dream Martin Luther King and I took a long walk
    Told him my goals he understood them and we talked and we talk
    About things as trivial as the light of sun’s position
    As it gracefully acted in the soulful rendition
    Of color intermission
    For skin color’s commission
    I love the view of beautiful dark chocolate faces in my vision

    And the clouds
    In my dreams
    It looks so different when you look at it now
    That’s cause you can see yourself there when you look at it now
    Don’t know how
    But when I looked at it, I ain’t see no flaw
    As if God was right next to me,
    Embracing me, lovingly
    Telling me not to worry
    Cause everything was alright
    I stay there to bathe in this new freedom light
    And as I’m ready to take the freedom flight
    My mind races through me and awakens me with spite
    Teling me I can’t dream,
    I still have to fight
    For true freedom


    And that is the end
    The end of all my dreams
    No more time for dreams
    Gotta come back to reality
    As if someone just pulled on my gravity
    Sayin no sorry
    No fantasy for you
    Go on in life
    Your dream ain’t gonna come true

    Will that be true?
    What does my dream mean for you?
    Do you see a bunch of words?
    Or can you understand the spiritual verbs

    Do you think you could decipher this dream for me?
    By helping this world to be a little more free?
    You might think I’m crazy
    You may just want to sedate me
    But I can’t ignore this pain that is bleeding through me
    So my subconscious created this dream remedy
    Until I am well until I’ll be ready
    To begin to play the tune of the freedom melody
    Blast it throughout the entire country
    I’ll say
    No the spangled banner ain’t playin today
    Who wants to listen to a bunch of lies anyway?
    And yes it’s will be on my Birthday
    The 29th in the month of May
    As in May you hear my peace address
    May you listen to my soul expressed?
    Read the dream written by the reality press
    See the dream of all come to reality, yet.

    And still, can you tell me what this means?
    Can you decipher my dreams?

    Reads like a peaceful Eden to me, where everything brown hued is beautiful, and everyone knows and admits it. What a serene dream this is, and so delicately expressed. Wow.
