Watching the Ripples Radiate.

Chapter 147
There Must be Dreams


In those days of woe with head hung low

In those moments of regret,

When your actions lose momentum

And your heart begins to fret.

When the best of plans do not work out

When your mountain seems too steep

And tractions lost in everything

And losing makes you weep.


Hard grafting wears your bones too thin

Your tomorrows fade to mist,

The splendour of your recent past

Despatched to moments missed.

Frustration that the rainbow plans

Have dwindled in the rain,

That your brilliant expectations

Have expired to things mundane.


Your stature has diminished

In the eyes of those you love,

Your capableness stultified

By the pointing velvet glove.

Self confidence is wilted now

Belief within less sure,

Potentialities diminishing

With every shrunken score.


Dark sombre thoughts receeding

Blue corners fade to gold,

Discontentment thrust asunder

As new amber dreams unfold.

The towering unhappiness

Diffuses to the air

And spirals of positivity

Emerge from here and there.


The path beyond the shadowed lane

Is there for you to tread,

Gird your soul for chance my friend

Discard the shoes of lead.

There must be dreams to savour

There must be goals to meet,

So launch your bold tomorrows

And delight in unknowns sweet.


You’re sailing in fair breezes now

The silver waters flow,

Warm sunshine on your shoulders

Rich contentment’s fine red glow.

For there must be dreams to savour

To hold within your heart,

To engage the thrill of living

And make each day a joy to start.
