A note to the Dream-Killers

January 06, 1995|By Olivia H. Green

Get back, move on or move over

Don't try to obstruct the path of my dreams

With the dead cells of your negativism.

Don't scatter your seeds of destruction

Around the seeds of my dreams.

Get back, move on or move over.

If you have no encouragement to fertilize my dreams

Don't try to transplant the weeds of your experiences

Into my soil to entangle the roots of my dreams

And choke out their breath.

If you know nothing of the fertilizer of dreams

Get back, move on or move over.

If you have no positive dreams of your own

Don't try to shoot down my ideas

Mutilate my plans

Poison my thoughts

Or crush my hopes.

Just get back, move on or move over.
