Reviving Dreams

Posted: April 14, 2010 in Poems, Thoughts

Have heard people say that their dreams are lost
Have some experience and that scares me a lot

Why every passing year weakens my resolve
Why every passing season withers my soul
All resolves try falling apart
When I last dreamt, at times I forgot

Whenever I wish to get back to life
I’ve to strive to keep my dreams alive
Hope I live till I die
And let my dreams live beyond where I lie.

    Had read the below lines sometime back. The thought has stayed with me since then
    Hold fast to dreams
    For if dreams die
    Life is a broken-winged bird
    That cannot fly.

    Hold fast to dreams
    For when dreams go
    Life is a barren field
    Frozen with snow.

      Tony was getting to sleep..he was drunk..while taking off his shoes, he trips and falls..He got his head smashed over the bed and he dies.
      Next thing he sees when he open eyes is a big Palace of Gold..white misty smoke floating on the floor…and sees..the almighty God..standing right in front of him,..smiling..and says..”Tony you are dead and you have reached my house…It is time for you to go to hell”..Tony replies “Oh please Lord, let me live for once again, as i have realized..I want to live again in a better way”..God was ready to give him an opportunity..God says “Tony you can go back to life..but, only as a chicken”. Tony didn’t had an option and he agrees…POOF!!..Tony is reborn as a chicken. In a confused state of mind, Tony looks around, Tony sees a big Rooster approaching..and suddenly he feels a pain in his stomach..Rooster says..”Its the Egg coming out..Let it out..”..Feeling the pain under his belly he screams..Aaaahh!!..PLOP!!..The Egg pops out..but this time Tony feels much fact, it felt good for Tony..Rooster smiling, he says “Aah!..Its coming again”..PLOP!..He drops another one…Tony feels good and ejects one more…Aah!..
      Suddenly He felt two hands grabbing his shoulders and violently shaking..He open his eyes and sees his wife staring at him..And he hears..”Tony,..Tony..Wake up..You are shitting the bed!!”……….

    I Have had lost my dreams,
    I Have had scary thoughts,
    Every passing year i thought of the resolution..
    Every passing season i thought of the destination..

    Asleep enough to believe the dreams
    All of my resolves fell apart once awake..
    Dreams are truer when eyes are closed
    Life become meaningful when they are open..

    Irony smiles at me as i wander past the dreamers
    Cause truth doesn’t rhyme and i’m not boarding the Noah’s Ark..
    Born alone and lived alone, no fear in dying alone
    When i finally get to sleep, i’ll start dreaming again…………..:)

    That’s true but here I was talking about dreams that one must have to reach one’s destination, not the fairy tale dreams. And we tend to put of those dreams and along with that we keep dragging ourself with stream of life. Enjoy life but without letting it drag you aimlessly.

    One of the most tragic things I know about human nature is that all of us tend to put off living. We are all dreaming of some magical rose garden over the horizon-instead of enjoying the roses blooming outside our windows today.
