Dream catchers

Posted by Zave | Posted in , , , , | Posted on 07:11


In ignorance we build castles in the air,
Confidence marks the path to success,
Innovation brings the future to reality,
And friends' trust comes to the support.

Dreams are what we would call them later,
Now they are the ultimate goal of our future,
And if we ever get them to see this world's light,
Our ambition would be then turned to bitter reality.

We hold those dreams close to our lively hearts,
And keep working with our mechanical minds,
Days on end we suffer the routine and get lost,
In the end, the heart becomes one with the mind.

We lose the vision we had in our bright eyes,
We forget to risk it all on our whim and belief,
And remain shackled in the chains of security,
Accustomed to live the life in this easy regularity.

We give up and turn our backs to our past,
Even as they all could have been entirely ours,
Just like the castles we had build someday,
Believing we would be dream catchers one day.

While the rarest of gems follow their hearts,
Realizing their destiny being etched in gold,
Riding away on success and their old faith,
Running after their dreams, their castles in air.

nice.. and as you said in these lines-
'We hold those dreams close to our lively hearts,
And keep working with our mechanical minds,
Days on end we suffer the routine and get lost,
In the end, the heart becomes one with the mind.'

my all daily plans and dreams get lost in the end of the day. :) :)

Yeah, and we never even come to know that those beautiful world of opportunities remain untouched by the end of the day.

"in dreams we believe
yet those dreams we fear to follow"

same old story.
but all it takes to change that is a little courage and good faith.

wishing you both courage and faith so you can live your dreams.

Well said.
And just to confirm, these verses did rise from the ashes of our talk.

hey.hiye.....
i like the last para a lot...it talks about the few people who choose to think different and follow their undying spirit and zest in doin the things they love.........

Yes, the few people who stand for their own visions.
Brave and courageous enough to make it all the way.
Sometimes I envy them.
:P
