The Value of Dreams - A Short Poem
The Value of Dreams
I have dreams for my life of who I want to be
The value of my dreams are measured in love, kindness, expression, and creativity
But this is not real value you say
Love doesn't buy food
Kindness doesn't pay the rent
Expression doesn't clothe you and
Creativity doesn't pay for life's necessities
Love nurtures our children's souls
Kindness is lending a helping hand
Expression brings out our inner feelings and
Creativity brings the world new ideas
Where is the balance? What is real value?
How do you measure your value?
Should you choose a job based solely on how it pays?
