Get busy living, or get busy dying- Stephan King

We grasp time
between our fingers;
taming the fiery wisps
of minutes.
We watch in wonder,
as they slowly float,
and we sketch our future
on the sand of our hope.
Time is frozen,
and our dreams are framed
forever in this moment.
on the shelves of our future,
just out of reach.
And then,
when it passes,
the wave of reality
rushes cruelly and snatches,
the dreams away;
fantasies erased …
But there is a faded outline
still there in the sand.
And so at the dawn of each day,
we start again …
and again …
and again …
Retracing the lines,
coloring with bold faith this time,
painting with brushes of confidence.
The waves hungrily swallow it
irritably sighing,
but this time left in the sand,
is a clear imprint;
a dream materializing …

I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.
- Maya Angelou
When i was little/I used to point a chubby finger toward the dark sky/And ask my father/why some stars moved and others didn’t/He would laugh and explain that some were airplanes/I still wish on them today ~ Laugh-It-Out
The feathers of a crow are black/The ink of my pen is blacker/The pain of my heart is blackest~ Mckay
If love produced a blossom/I’d take it in my palm/What a blessing, the bright color!/How soothing, such a balm!/I’d keep a petal for my own/The rest, drop from my hands/For such a flower would multiply/And populate the lands~ thesilentraven
And I began to rival legends/Long entombed before my birth./But for all my much envied fame/The lust for more would not abate./The plaques and prizes with my name/Will, like all things, disintegrate. ~ TheEpic95 now known as Helena_Noel

Oh My! This is simply beautiful. I LOVE the way you have spoken of dreams. Just beautiful.
