Brian Johnston (Jan.20,1943 / Shattuck, OK)
Chasing A Dream! ?
Some people take flack for chasing their dreams
From plain folks who perhaps don’t have many
They’re knocked for not taking life as it seems,
Risking treasure worth more than a penny.
Dreams are illusive, you’re not in control,
You’ve, at best, just a slim ghost of a chance
Unlike real people who come with a soul
A dream will not ever promise a dance.
Dreams may come quickly then suddenly go,
In love and in war we’re told ‘all is fair, ’
Just ask yourself this, 'What does my heart know?
When the dawn comes is my sweet dream still there? ’
Still need permission? My answer is yes!
I will admit though the wait can be tough
But joy will be yours when friends must confess
Some dreams come true and you had the ‘Right Stuff.’
