‘Reality against childhood dreams’

Where are those dreams?

Those dreams that you’ve dreamt

Of beauty and success,

Of exotic fragrances and happiness?

.

Where are those promises

Made under cherry trees

Of eternal love and pleasures unmissed,

Of perfect moments, forever in oasis?

.

Where are those hopes

Cherished since childhood years

For world waiting with open arms

And for realized ambitions?

.

Where is it all now?

You creep behind the rainbow

Just to find out there’s nothing there

Except for blackness, disappointment and pain

  4. Those dreams are still there, in your head, you just need to get out there and make them real!
    Nice sense of longing here, and dreams lost.

  9. I think the important dreams are still there – just need to delve in and undercover them – dust them off and start dreaming again … it is never too late for the real dreams! Most often, we settle rather than pursue our dreams ~~ then we are disappointed because of our actions of settling!!

    I love Izzy!!!
