Get Up

Ehsan Sehgal

Your dreams
As the truth
That become
Your power of mind
Your joy of heart
Feeling of love
Light of love
It is now open
And moving
To mixing into you
To making two hearts
One forever
Get up
Before your dreams
Become only the dream
Instead of the fact
You take it
And keep the limits
In your mind
The crossing it
The making larger it
The result will be the worst
It will damage and hurt
You get nothing
Except tears.
