Deep Dreams

Written by: Andrea Dietrich

Our fondest dreams are those we find
submerged the deepest in our mind.

They are the oldest dreams of all
around which now has grown a wall.

My own wall has grown year by year,
and time to time I shed a tear.

Life’s wall so high - deep dreams so low -
I finally have to let them go.
