My calling is to search the dream
To find what holds my name and fate
To seek the Secret of this life
Before the time is just too late

My life it turned, each day did change
My routine gone and passed
Relieved; reprieved, a second chance
My time to make it last

Then voices spoke, that I did hear
My dreams and thoughts of mind did wake
A Secret lost began to form
And future plans I came to make

To wish in thought, to feel and want
To nurture what did grow within
To then believe without a doubt
Made better times in life begin

I saw my future crystal clear
Felt power, for my core was bright
Not wavering in my belief
Just knowing that the way was right

To ask, believe and then receive
Obedience of mind and will
Not doubting what was to become
The Secret gave and fills me still

To focus on just what you wish
To ask of life all that you dream
From catalogue that knows no bounds
Found mind and feelings on the team

And then there came the miracle
My wishes came to be
I used the Secret I had found
And life then came to me

So just believe and youíll receive
Donít waiver from the dream you long
And you will find within a time
Within that dream you now belong

I sware, if lifes biggest mistakes was to honor ones gut, we would all have happier tales. Its sad, how many years that we toss to just learn that. Great poem and wonderful lessons. I loved, "I used the Secret I had found And life then came to me"

~Best Regards,Raven Smith

Hi Rick, I recently saw the movie "The Secret" which expounds all I have believed for so long ... and still it hasn't come to me but journey on the soldier sang and so I shall regardless.  Enjoyed your poem because it surely tells it like it is if one can just believe.

My dear poet,
I think you have it.

Would that all could
keep it...

though sometimes we
decide that life simply
cannot be that easy...
and we bring on our own sorrow.

Very well done, Rick.  Thank you!

Your poem expressed the Secret very beautifully. I have been studying quantum physic principles for almost three years, and  I have manifested some of my desires in very miraculous ways.  

Thank you for sharing the beauty of the Secret.

Enjoyed this. Have been watching Susie Ormond lately as she has put out a new book. Mostly for women and money management. But her story is fascinating and any one would love it. We all live our lives every day I feel, and if we keep our eyes and ears open we will continue to learn every day. Thank you Rick, martyjo

Rick,

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
So just believe and youíll receive
Donít waiver from the dream you long
And you will find within a time
Within that dream you now belong
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Wish I'd written that!

Thought is a living thing, especially your own thoughts...

One of the rare occasions that I really can relate entirely to a piece of poetry,

This really does seem so pertinant now, given the situation you are in!
