Never hide your dreams
He kept his dream in a cardboard box
To be opened once in a while, In it wrapped in innocence Was a wide-eyed small boy’s smile.
He'd forgotten how to wear it What with life and choices and all,
But he needed to look every now and then
Whenever he felt withdrawal.
He needed to look to make sure it was there
That it hadn't faded away, For if it at all were possible He'd wear it again one day.
One day when the leaves were green
And the stars in alignment fell, One when he would wake up And everything would gel. He knew that day would never come
For chance is an ungainly beast,
It lumbers into our consciousness
On our souls to feast. So never hide your dream in a box
To be opened once in a while, Set it free and follow it
And you'll surely find your smile.
