Dreams

Sweet lullabies sung me to sleep
Dream dreamy dreams baby, do not weep
I believed, dreamt, slept without further peep
Childhood threshold was crossed over, asleep

Onset of teens wrought havoc on body and mind
Making me reclusive, dreaming dreams unkind
Parental guidance and rebukes always declined
Dreams became scary and hairy and maligned

Youth brought its own particular set of built in woes
Onset of soon becoming an adult, coming on tipsy toes
Topsy turvy was head and body then a mass of cravings
Fitting in, failing, flailing to save dreams from caving

Lofty dreams like castles in the air, heralding, enticing
Parents aspirations clashing often with great reckonings
Dreams unrealized, nevertheless crystallized into hard reality
Defying well meaning advice to chase dreams beckoning

All dreams are manifestations
Process of living and growing
Morphing from egg- larva- pupa
Butterfly of dreams blooms finally
Realized at last, a fait accompli
And
Everytime dreams become
Magnificent obsessions
A genius is born
Saddle your dreams before you ride them.
Mary Webb English, Novelist Quotes

Take what you can from your dreams, make them as real as anything.
Dave Matthews South African, Musician Quotes

 

When the legends die, the dreams end; there is no more greatness.
Tecumseh American, Leader Quotes

Dreams are the seeds of change. Nothing ever grows without a seed, and nothing ever changes without a dream.
Debby Boone American, Actress Quotes

Dreams are often most profound when they seem the most crazy.
Sigmund Freud Austrian, Psychologist Quotes

 It is not true that people stop pursuing dreams because they grow old, they grow old because they stop pursuing dreams.
Gabriel Garcia Marquez Colombian, Novelist Quotes

    You write that:
    All dreams are manifestations
    Process of living and growing

    It reminds me my college days when I was mad behind reading Freud and Karl Gustav Jung, the psychologists.
