In Pursuit of Dreams

By Tony DeLorger © 2013


In pursuit of dreams,

each step alone,

we follow hearts,

our lives unknown.

Point of view,

a singular sight,

just how we judge,

determines plight.

Belief the foundation,

of limits accepted,

gives credence to

many truths rejected.

Yet hold we must,

onto bounds created,

thinking live will be better,

the good compensated.

But all the limits,

we create,

just keeps us still,

and in darkness sate.

Life is a canvas,

for us to paint,

there are no bounds,

just choices to make.

And in those choices,

lies just who we are,

and what we'll face,

a guiding star.

In pursuit of dreams,

the truth can beguile,

in our own minds,

to twist and style.

But when a serene mind accepts,

and envisions an end,

the world stands aside,

and in penance amends.


We are our greatest stumbling block,

yet with truth, an unyielding potential.
