    I AM A REALIST
    My dreams are idealistic
    Rested off the pillow case
    And built off the clouds
    Counting sheeps twice over from few
    Clung to possibility by blood
    Determination counted in tears

    I AM A REALIST
    Practically, I am 9 clouds above ground
    Inspiration meets drive and struggle
    How does one spell struggle without pain?
    Yet I rest my hopes on change
    I believe in faith
    What are the chance that see level will change
    And knowledge will infect billions
    Spread like epidemic(AIDS)
    I am stuck on the foundation of my people
    My people; who are my people??

    I AM A REALIST
    Freedom is desired by all bound
    Claiming continents
    I find case in reason
    And cause in making a case
    Countries bleeding
    Lands pleading
    Cease fire.
    Cause and reason.

    BUT I AM A REALIST
    Even the trails paved and created
    I backpack on my ancestors tears
    Blood from death
    Stress and fears
    May not be enough
    Now
    But options erased leave choices minimal
    But remain
    I believe in faith!

    I AM A REALIST
    My passions are manifested
    My style
    My soul
    My breathe
    A divine creation
    Change is concrete. Definite.
    Consistent with movement
    Hope is idealistic.

    BUT I AM A REALIST
    I believe
    In faith
    And my dreams are rested
    On pillow case
    9 clouds above see level
    Infected others with knowledge
    The should be
    Epidemic.
    And thus
    I AM A REALIST

    To have the mindset that sees change as reality, knowing where one stands, yet knowing the possiblities of movement. I appreciate the way you penned this piece, you always give the mind food for thought poetess.
