Dream

 

It may be a pipe dream

But it’s my dream.

I’m going to take it, claim it

Protect it

Because its mine.

I’m no longer going to hide it

To fight it

Stick it in my back pocket and forget it

Sit on it let it stew

Waste away and die.

It’s a long shot, and a far shot

But I have a good eye, a good aim, it’s my game

My day to try

I’m taking the hard way, the fool’s way

The way with no map, plan or rules

The way that will cause sighs and rolling eyes

Rude comments of “You’ll see when you try.”

People in this small town will talk when I pass by

But I won’t care, I won’t ask why, I will not try

Try to get them to understand me, to except why.

Why

Because I’m crazy

Because I try

Because it’s a dream

It’s my Dream.

That’s why.
