Why do we all wonder about what life is all about?

------ The Essential Dream------


What is it with dreams anyway

evanescent wisps of imagination

sometimes cemented by ones mind

into substance and true believability

Appearing on golden horizons too distant

to perceive the danger

surrounding such lofty pinnacles

Despite the risk

dreams always seem to lead

creating promise and purpose

Yet, when dreams are forsaken

is it sanity or weakness

which allows reality to intrude,

dissolving castles to sand

destroying hope and possibility

abandoning the sunrise of a thousand tomorrows

In spite of circumstance

a true dreamer cannot extinguish

some small candle burning in their heart,

finding the fabric of dreams

interred within the marrow of their bones,

inseparable for eternity

Dreams are an awesome power

and perhaps possess

the actual ownership of life indeed

for it is possible,

humanity is a mere shell to carry that force

For without dreams,

time is without meaning

life is not living, only an existence

could dreams perhaps be

the essence of life
