Don't give up your dreams - Haiku

Don't give up your dreams

when motivation is low

smile, change perception.


Don't give up your dreams

when people tell you no way

look beyond today


Don't give up your dreams

when money is short bills call

you'll figure it out


Don't give up your dreams

expressive, unique, essence

keeps you alive, free


Don't give up your dreams

you'll look back, say if only

what I could have been


Don't give up your dreams

believe and focus and act

now is not too soon.


Don't give up your dreams

even if you're old and grey

not too late to do


Don't give up your dreams

your dream is our tomorrow

creative vision


Don't give up your dreams

your dreams could be the answer

Don't give up your dreams.


"Never, never, never give up." Winston Churchill

      Thanks for your encouragement to all of us by sharing your haiku. Too often we get side tracked and forget our original dream.

      Great advice and so beautifully expressed in your poem. I think there is nothing more important than following your dreams... to not try is to quench a part of yourself in defeat.

      This is a wonderful piece of work - beautiful and inspiring. It reflects a little on what I was going through a short time ago after being made redundant. But I did go for the dream! I'll keep your poem handy as it's sure to inspire me if I have any doubts.

      Voted up beautiful + awesome!

      Lovely poem! The saying goes you give up it lasts forever. If you dream big and move forward who knows where life will take you.
