Destiny Dream… Toni L.A. Cross


The words resounded mellifluous

It seemed like a distant pleasant dream

Telling prospects so adventurous

Likely composed of a vapor stream

Daring that somehow its really true

My beautiful future now concrete

Solid consciousness jumped up and flew

The ground said farewell to my bare feet

Stepping on a path I cannot see

Walking in purpose and destiny


fleeing words… by Toni L.A. Cross


don’t take my words away

and leave me in the dark

please let these syllables stay

alphabet so crisp and stark

don’t run from me I pray

fly flitting like a lark

speaking come what may

these phrases sullenly bark

i long and grope for day

for a yellow sunrise mark
