"Will I Ever Catch My Dreams?" Poem

I keep running and running it seems...

Always trying to catch my dreams...

Each day...one step ahead of the day before...

Each morning...waking up to run some more.

Everything that I think I can do...

Is all just a little further up ahead...So What's New?

Wondering If I'll ever take a bite of the carrot dangling ahead...

Tired of reaching for that thing...Think I'll just go back to bed.

Crazy Ideas...and dreams that I scheme...

Just add to the list...So, Why should I dream?

If I work to accomplish a goal...even just one...

I'll find I never reached it...when I thought I was done.

Oh...to be in the moment where the dream is real...

I tell you if that happened...I'd have to pinch myself for real...I feel !

It's kind'a funny how I can dream all day for free...

But...It takes time and money to make it a...reality.

With one foot stuck in planning...and the other ready to press on...

I take the next step towards reality...before the dream is long gone.

Then...I stop for a moment to try to recall...

If I really ever dreamed...that dream at all.

Of wanting to and trying to...be one step further ahead...

I work, and work at the dream...trying to achieve it before I'm dead.

Which I believe someday it will become real...It will happen...

At least one day ahead of the day...I start permanently nappin' !

Set out to run my best...

Thought I'd passed every test...

Ran over Hill and over dale...

On the chance that if I stopped...I'd fail...

Ran even faster when the dream was in reach...

I can see myself running in my dreams...along a lonely beach.

And as I run and run the many miles of the shoreline...

I realize I'll never run fast enough to catch my dreams in time.

If I ever do catch up to one single dream...Boy...I'll tell ya' what !

I'll stop chasing anymore of my dreams...and tell the rest to go kiss my b_tt !

It is much easier to dream...than to make things real...

Why work so hard then...to achieve your dreams...I don't get it...What's the big deal ?

If one dream doesn't ever come to pass...

There's plenty more where that came from...You can bet your _ss !

If I run to catch my dreams...Will I get there if I walk ?

Actions speak louder than words...but that still is nothing but talk.

I want to experience...living a dream come true...

And stop experiencing set backs...each time...before I'm through.

I want to seize the moment...where the dream is in my grasp...

Not to discover...I have allowed the window of time for my dream...to lapse.

I want to look all around and see me in my own dreams...that I have...

That my dream has become real...I will now rest...I will now laugh !

You see to me...my dreams are nothing more than a floor plan...

I give my all to my dreams...grabbing for each rung...hand over hand...

I do the best I can to catch my dreams...I push forward the best I can...

No Ocean is too big to cross...No Continent...covered by land...

In my dreams...I catch my dreams...But in my dreams...I'm a different man...

I know I will catch my dreams someday...I have seen it in my dreams...While I ran.
