Dont Touch My Dream

You may injure my body
Crush my honor underfoot
You may starve and abuse me
But let this be understood…

I’ll not let you touch my dream

I can relinquish my wealth
Give up all that’s in my name
I can bend to iron will
Let you cover me in shame…

I’ll not let you touch my dream

I will fight with dying breath
I will turn insipid, wild
I'll risk all I am and have
Be a warrior when I'm riled

If you dare to touch my dream

NO, DON'T YOU DARE TOUCH MY DREAM

    That's the spirit! Our dreams are the blueprints of our future , of our life, it is the essence of our being, without them we will be lost in the middle of an ocean of confusion without hope and honor! So we have to stand up and fight for they are the most vital ideas of mortals! Inspiring writing Eileen!

    Attagirl!! Protect your dream with your very life. Go get 'em, girlfriend. Thank you for this injection of inspiration. By the by, thanks for the invitation, which is reciprocated, of course. Cape Town is beautiful with rich and diverse cultures. May you take all your dreams to fruition, fragile-hearted one. Licia :-)
