When all else fails, most dream. Some never know failure because they dream.


Dream-Dues

Like apples waiting to be plucked
Peeled wrappings of birthday and Christmas levies
All day suckers condemned
Taken away by loving mothers

Dreams

Abandon the risk of Life's sugar rot
Knowing gentle sweetness is always savored
Before the angry sour
That some eye rolls of pleasure are forever overdue
Even while seeking the danger
The longing for cotton candy laughter
A willingness to sustain bubble gum hair barbs
Just to smell the juicy
To hear the noise of layered laughter
To see Time Square's New Year madness
To...

Dream

To walk down an aisle
Awaiting bliss-enshrined promises
To believe in princesses
Awaiting their knight in shining armor
To garner points for accepting youth's naiveté
To know that dreams are here today
Often gone tomorrow

Yet

Dream we must
Why else are there dues?

All of us take chances and dream, often times we are disappointed but if we were not to take that chance and pursue that dream we would never know. Dues or not, optimistically I feel all things are learned and gives us wisdom.

Lovely

Love and Light

"Abandon the risk of Life's sugar rot

Take a chance. Why not? Even though you risk the sourness of anger if you continue. Dreams, in my mindset, is worth the possibilities of never fulfilling that dream. To do otherwise is to become robot-influenced and the walking dead.

Why else are there dues, indeed.

Odin
dreams and desires fire our drive to attain that which we preceive we need, well done.
