The God of Dreams

Joseph had a dream or two
That sent him on his way
And though the world caved in on him
God kept him every day.

He must have thought that things went wrong
And must have wondered why
Yet all along the way he went
God kept him by and by.

The dream that sent him on his way
Must have seemed a curse
But then it happened just as shown
As if a reading verse by verse.

To Begin

I had thought to find my heart
And with it all the answers sought
And sit in peace content and free
And then begin my life.

But this of course is foolishness
And life begins when you are born
And all the pain and suffering
Has made you who you are.

And this soul which walks so far
Need not wait for happiness
Need not wait for its peace
To live in life today.
