Do Dreams Really Die?

What is a dream, if not hope incarnate?
It comes to us, again and again
even when we cannot relate
and all we wonder is if the pain,
so real, will leave, and when.

A dream scorned, ridiculed, beaten down
underneath scowls or frightening frowns.

What was my dream, do I even remember?
It comes to me, again and again,
even when I cannot relate
and I wonder if the pain,
so real, will leave, and when.

Was it hope that brought forth my dreams?
Will I ever believe in hope again?

What was your dream, do you even remember?
Does it ever come to you, again and again,
even when you cannot relate
and you wonder if the pain,
so real, will leave, and when.

Dare we? Dare you? Dare I? Dare we hope
to learn, hope to try, hope to dream again?

I will.

Sunshine,
A wonderful job
repetition in a poem is hard to do
And you did it so well.

Dreams are the seeds of reality, nurture them with hope and love... if not, they will surly die and so will you.
Such are my thoughts. A fine poem sunshine. Thanks for sharing and making me think.

Great work Sunshine. I can relate to this
more than I'd like to admit right now. I'll share more with you later...check your e-mail for details. But thanks, I guess somewhere we all know hope is never completely gone.
