When a dreamer Stops Dreaming
By Edward Taylor III
What happens when a dreamer stops dreaming?
When there are no more goals to hold his gaze,
His passion a prisoner behind the bars of selfish rage,
Nightmares of failure haunt his sleepless nights,
Frustration begins to consume his starved will to fight;
His expressions are now empty,
They’ve become idle words on a page;
All he wanted was for people to listen & be inspired,
But no one paid any mind to the gift that he gave,
So the dreamer stopped dreaming in the process of time,
His pen left useless, no more thoughts to line;
So what happens when a dreamer stops dreaming?
This is a question I ask myself;
The answer to which remains unknown,
Simply because this dreamer is determined to dream,
Even if he is destined to dream Alone.
Keep dreaming & keep your vision a live GOD BLESS- “For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry”. (Hab 2:3)
2 thoughts on ““Where there is no vision, the people perish” (Pro 29:18) your dreams, your visions, are the very essence & fabric of Gods purpose & intent for your life. So many spend their lives yearning but never seeking for the answer to these questions “what is my purpose?” or “Why am I here?” Instead you spend your time & your energy in frustration living “paycheck to paycheck” ignoring the cry of your heart. This is a poem of that very thing; a poem of what happens…”
Beautifully said. Keep dreaming, keep writing, it is accomplishing more than you know!
Thank you, that means alot to me, stay tuned for more:o)
