Fulfil me, no.
Fill me, full.

Your prophecy won't save me and
my prophecy won't save me.
It will decieve me
and sell lies to my soul.

Your dreams won't set me free and
my dreams won't set me free.
They cloud my thoughts
and rain on my reality.

All I need is:
my belief,
my knowledge,
my soul
and the truth.

I am my prophecy
I am my dreams.

A clever tricksy turn around poem. Wonder if the message is about belief in self and not external messages or handed down beliefs? If so, I wonder if the second and third stanzas would be clearer if they were along the lines of 'your prophecy won't save me?..' just a thought. Enjoyed this poem. V

Yes, that's what it's about. Glad you picked that up. I like your suggestions.
