Dreams


When I was young I lived a dream
I had everything I needed in front of me, I created my world
I didn’t even know of the impossible…I had no limitations
Now I know why, I didn’t have a lot to think about…I couldn’t just see afar
The only thing I knew was to create, even my own dreams

Today, I can dream but fail to live my dream…
That’s when I remember I lived my imagination
Reality is the only thing before me and so I fail to make a thing by thoughts
The times I search for the dream choice, provide me with one but so I.M.P.O.S.S.I.B.L.E
I just can’t live the childhood dreams anymore…I now see needs and wants
Though even at times I confuse the two…at least I know they exist
It’s more than just the dreams

Of course at times I keep dreaming and don’t want an end to the dream
I fear if I wake up, I may end up having nothing but worries
No more car of my own even a home by just words
I had parents they took care of that, not anymore for I now see far and need big things
Things that are real…not just those dreams I had when I was small….

It’s now me and the world
Where I got to work myself out in order to live a fraction of my dream
Waking up daily to face new challenges of the day…the world is dynamic

Still my hope, faith tells me not stop trying make the dreams come true
So I keep pressing with my dreams …achieving, even the unexpected…
Life is just dreams, imagination, hope, the unexpected, it’s fun

Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
