Dream Chasing

Do you ever fidget

Twist and turn just trying to get comfortable on the couch

Tossing side to side, readjusting pillows, 

Throwing sheets kicking feet from under covers

Too busy running to sleep

Have your legs ever felt restless

Circling square places

Have you ever inhaled but still…couldn’t…breathe

Tell me

Have you ever nightmare’d on defeat

Woke up citing Psalms and quoting Scriptures

Unable to recognize the verbal warrior within your throat

Fingers positioned in praises and “Thou shall not take thy name in vain”

I’m saying

If you can not tell me this

Then you have no idea what it means when I say I’m chasing my dreams
