DREAMING

Author:
Fernando Lachica

Poem:
Dreaming


I, for one....dreaming to become what I want to be
The vastness of it comes solely from what God had given me
No matter what....no matter when....no matter how...
I will give meaning to my life.

Dreaming is not about something big and beautiful
Dreaming is not always a bed of roses
Dreaming is not wealth, fame, or power
But a step forward for your life to go on....and on...
Until...one day...you realize...that you are making your own destiny...

Life is what you make it
Life is when you decide something for yourself
Life is loving someone near to your heart
Life is knowing God's commandments
And, you are solely responsible for your life.

So, now, make the most of it while you're still young
It won't come back a second or two
To make a life of your own?...still dreaming?...
Wake up and stand for yourself....
No matter what...no matter when...no matter how...

Dreaming...the way dreamers often do?

    I love the second verse especially and this whole poem sincerely speaks to my heart. Great ending line, for, it makes the reader go back and read it all again. Love Christie

    This need to be reworked, honestly. I found this amateurish and high-school-ish. Good attempt and message though, but lacks poetic artistry.
