“Waking Dream” by Patrick Lee Hebert

This is a poem from my book ” The Forgotten Dream” that is coming out soon. I remember thinking of how we often have to fight for our dreams with opposition at every corner. Never give up!

 

WAKING DREAM

 

 

Suppose you want the sky

But the earth is offered

What about the sea

Dry land for choice this time

 

Seemingly alarmed you ask for wind

They give you rain

You will settle for a breeze

A blizzard occurs

 

Some give up and wait

Some give up and take the offer

I will watch from my window

Let the world unfurl around me

 

Make no decision now they say

Wait till tomorrow

Maybe what you want will come

I don’t believe it and decide to dream instead…

 

Of…

 

Skies and sea

Breezes and sun

Contented dreams

Living there is my dream…

 

No-one can take it from me
