Dreams Are Like Trees


Dreams are born, are crushed, are renewed and even stamped into oblivion … daily.

Dreams take birth – a fledgling of an idea,
takes seed in a fertile mind, capable of overcoming the paranoia.

The seed sprouts, grows, takes form of a sapling,
budding into a tree flowering.

Do the saplings always become the trees?
No. Most times, they fall, get crushed, trampled upon, rise again and even uprooted.growth-445283_640.jpg

A freak storm, a petulant child, an errant ball overshooting the boundary line
Nature’s fury or Humanly wrath leaving it trampled, scattered,
lifeless remains left aside in the aftermath of a force it could not withstand.

Whatever be the fate – to shine or perish,
the plant accepts the love and hate.
Uproot it yourself or wait for it to be washed away
Its existence is sure to be erased forever.

The Sun shines again,
The breeze blows again,
The seed germinates again.

A new dawn awakens,
a new beginning promised
And a new dream is born.

Dream… dream away.
Dreams are born, transformed, wont to come true and achieved … daily!

    Intersting perspective on dreams. Some dreams are bigger than others. Some dreams can seem silly.

      Thank you 🙂 Yes, indeed. And yet, all dreams are attainable and should be treated with equal respect. Loved your addition to the poem. 🙂 Thank you for reading and commenting.

        I love it when a dream comes true. Some of mine have already come true

            well, being a student at Gardner Webb was a dream and I have been there since Spring 2015 and graduating May of 2018.

            Seeing Les Mis in the West End was a dream too and that came true two years ago. I even fulfilled my childhood dream of seeing a guard in London (yes that sounds silly) and fulfilled my dream of going to Chicago and wanted to go just because it is known as the windy city

      Indeed. What I am trying to say is that sometimes they may not but one shouldn’t be dissappointed. For soon a better bigger dream may come true. Thank you for reading and commenting. 🙂

      Until you dream you won’t how to fulfill it. Some may come true and some won’t but that’s okay because you’ll have more dreams and aspirations. And you’ll work hard to achieve them. 🙂 So all the best to making all your dreams come true.
      Thank you for reading. 🙂
