About the poet

I live in Phoenix and I swear I’m the only Caucasian here with a sun burn year round :/

About the poem

I wrote this when everyone gave up on me and labeled me a lost cause….yet I never allowed myself to feel hopeless. I was young at the time living in Northern California and hanging around a group of Buddhist Monks…any and every kind of knowledge I learned from them I wrote into this poem. I might of been young and dumb but I made it through a struggle at a younger age than most people could even do.

A soul awake

By Jeremiah James

A soul awake

Hope–
Is but a waking dream,
Left up to one’s faith,
To create it’s own mean.

It’s a simple wish,
One makes to expect–
To come to be,
And take effect.

As hope is the dream,
Of one’s soul awake.
And a chance to redeem–
What one wishes to take.

With hope lies a path,
Which all will see.
For the destined soul,
Who wished it be.
