Write Down.


Hey,
You dream of something?
Wow that is great then.
Well,
Another step forward is this-
Get up
and go for a pen.
Draft the content of your dream
and print the blueprints
before the dream drifts away.
Don't let it fade with the day,
Secure it today.
This way,
Your dream will make pay-
some day-
When your dream is actually *actionized.

*actionaized-coined from the word 'act'

    I like it very much. Smart, well thought and very direct. Not very touching though. But I am a bit of dark fan, so what do I know? Don't count my opinion. U are good.: D (Report) Reply

    leaky, mi like the way your poem is to the theme....it's like saying something in a brief and precise manner leaving the audience with a complete thought of your work. (Report) Reply

    I do not want to lie about my feelings on this poem. I find it has a message you want to communicate and unless i am mistaken you have vaguely managed that, instead i feel you have mixed up whatever you wanted to say in order to create a rhythm which is not of paramount importance this type of poetry which won't be read aloud. And the title? From me Leakey it's 4.5/10 but i'll proceed to read more of your work. Thanks for sharing (Report) Reply

    very nice. but i have the weakness. I also do dream but it drifts away before actionized. This poem is indeed a great message for a man like me who can not conceal even a single word. must vote for EXCELLENT (Report) Reply
