Our dreams may not always come true . Sometimes the don't, sometimes they do.
One thing we need to consider is that if they come true in part, that is a step. If a baby bird never dared to flap his wings, he would never fly.

Dare to Dream


Dreams do not always come true , you know

But, if you do not dream your wishes simply go.

Let us look at why we fail to follow our dreams.

One reason is pessimism, or so it seems.

Pessimism will cause many a mind to stall.

If you dare not dream, you have no plan at all.

There is a word for a plan to overcome this treacherous stalemate.

Optimism can help you press on before it’s too late.

If you dare to dream it may not come true , you see

However if you dare not to dream it will definitely never be.

So be courageous and dare to follow that dream.

Cling to it and work at it no matter how hopeless it may seem.

If you do not accomplish this dream, dream again.

You will learn from your failures and accept your accomplishments with a grin.

Allow yourself to follow your heart

Keep in your mind that your dreams are a start.

Just as a man who is building a house sits making a plan

Dare to dream of accomplishments greats and believe that you can.

The true failure for us all is never allowing ourselves to try.

Hence, we find ourselves hopelessly wondering why.

“Why did I never to great works,” we say.

The answer, my friend is that we let doubt get in the way.

This is good, Lew. If we don't have dreams, we're simply walking deads! I have so many dreams, too many sometimes, like right now, I'm involved in five major dream projects, all requiring heaps of time. Not enough hours in the day to meet the requirements, but I'm going to give them a good old try. I like a challenge! You always challenge me, Lew... :)

God Bless

Lew, this is a fabulous write, and an encouragement to all!

It also serves as a reminder, that it is The LORD, who places those seeds into us, and what opportunities are lost, when we do not seek to discover where they may lead!

Some dreams take many many years to come to fruition, while others are often realized within a few short years. I heartily agree, Lew, let us never lose sight of our dreams!

God bless you!

I love the line: "If you do not accomplish this dream, dream again." Thank you for the inspiration. JM

Such true words, Lew -- this is an upbeat, thoughtful poem.
Thank you for sharing your insight.

Wonderful message, Lew! When a person dares to dream, he/she is often optimistic about his/her own future. One who has dreams is the richest person on earth! Enjoyed this!

Absolute truth...this is a great poem and thoughtfully written, I try to live by those same words, for if we do not dream it would be a cold and lonely world. Dreams keep us pressing for tomorrows!
I loved it...
