Follow Your Dreams.

Follow Your Dreams. short poem

Uploaded by Marie


They say it’s all in the mind
How we imagine things to be
is very far removed
from what becomes our reality

We each have dreams to follow
A date to keep with Fate
We strive for success on the ladder
and pray we don’t end up ‘shark bait’

Sometimes dreams fall by the wayside
We fail to make them come true
Caught up in the tangles of life
we struggle to the back of the queue

Never give up on your dreams
Follow them day after day
Never lose sight of your goals
as you travel along life’s highway

Dare to dream…
