Still Dreaming.

I’ll keep dreaming, dream dreaming

Dreaming of the dreams I left at the door

When life happened and push came to shove

I’ll be dreaming, still dreaming

because they won’t let go of me

Dreaming of the dreams, that still lingers

somewhere inside my heart

dreaming of the dreams I left behind

The ones I gave up because I was too scared

Too afraid to let it out

But there they are

roaring at me, like a lion

deep within my heart.


I pretended I never had them.

But the dream still scratches me

I thought I was never good enough

I thought I needed to prove my worth

But they are still waiting

to wait at the door

where I left them.

Waiting for me to open the door.


These are my dreams

They belong to me

Not my husband’s or my children’s

Not my sibling’s or anyone

These dreams are mine, all mine

Because they represent my allotment.

My portion in the earth realm.



My dreams are the reasons I am here

Not just to be among the statistics,

It is not just to be  a  ‘Mrs somebody’

Not just to bear children, and warm him in bed.

These dreams weigh much more than all that.

They are bigger than me, greater than my imagine

Yet I bear them, still within the veil.

I am still dreaming!

Am I still scared? Maybe.

Do I believe I can? Yes, I believe.

I want to give these dreams meaning

let them find expressions through me

Dream freely, free my dreams

Open up the doors

While I still dream!

    Wonderful poem about dreaming. I don’t think we lose our dreams. They may grow or change, become different dreams. But they are always there for us our personal goals and hopes, no matter the door. Much luck achieving your dreams.
