Dream Awake

December 17, 2007
By Alexander Wank, Pewaukee, WI

I am not from the Garden
Where Judgment was passed.
I am not from the Fires
Where the Fallen was cast.
I am not from the sane
Nor the screwed up.
I am from my home
The place I grew up.
I am from the Koontz
To the Shan and the Flynn.
I am from the chair
That I was rocked in.
I am from my dad
Always making me smile.
I am from my mom
With her caring all the while.
I am from the land
Where the dreams are born bright.
I am from the one
That makes everything right.
I am just one soul
Only this I do fear.
But I am from the hope
That love is all here.
