You Live, You Dream! (4 Potluck Week 12+1)



You live, You dream,
You laugh, You scream.
Everyone dreams of one’s need,
Everyone fears of one’s greed.
All our sorrows and tears
Help us grow stronger over the years.
Beyond that, you can see,
Women dream whatever she be,
And her dreams no one knows,
Dreams that rails on her foes.
All the praises she receives
Will be written in wind, and leaves.
I dream and I am bond with chains,
And I dream that all the pains
Help me learn
And win.
What is life?
A roller coaster ride
That could go extreme.
How to survive?
Hold your steering wheels tight
And do an excellent drive,
No blame game!

Jingle, this is beautiful and so very true. So many questions, so many answers, leading to more questions. But what a wonderful image of hope.

the day i stop dreaming is the day i die. this one's another upbeat piece of yours that i love, jingle.

sorry i wasn't able to join the rally. my schedule has become toxic especially that i have to rush and finish a lot of work before the holiday season sets in. i think i can go back to normal blogging only after new year. a nice way to start my year, right?

{{{hugsss}}} for you, friend!
