Hold fast to dreams
For if dreams die
Life is a broken-winged bird

    Too brief and shallow why is that
    such a favorite?

    I really appreciate this poem. It enthralled me with its simple words that carry an amazing meaning. It is like a piece of advice. Whenever I read it a strong energy and motivation invade me. Come on! dream. Dreams are neither expensive nor cheap; they cost nothing. Dream! and when your dream becomes true you will fly in the happiness' air and sink in the pleasure's sea. Simply you will be indeed alive.
