Far Beyond My Childhood Dream


As a child
I had a dream
That one day
I shall reach the cloud
So, when birds criss-crossed
I dreamt of flying above them

As I grew older
My teacher taught me
That the cloud is miles away
That the cloud is not the zenith
There is more beyond the cloud
I must excel to soar beyond the cloud

As I advanced in age
My childood dream
Diluted with my teachers teachings
I resolved not only to reach the cloud
But to discover life beyond the cloud
I abandoned the ordinary for extra-ordinary
Daily I march on towards excellence
Although the road to the top is rough
I am undaunting in going beyond my childhood dream
For my childhood dream
Is little compared with greatness ahead

Poem of the Day

poet Christopher Marlowe

It lies not in our power to love or hate,
For will in us is overruled by fate.
When two are stripped, long ere the course begin,
We wish that one should love, the other win;
