The Value of Dreams - A Short Poem

Updated on January 16, 2016

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

I say

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?

See results

I Hoped Beyond Hope

      I love what you said here...all good reminders to just be yourself, no matter what other think or feel. It can be hard at times to stick to what you know in your heart is real or true and what you want to be, but it is well worth it, if it leaves you feeling better about who you really are. : ) Voted up and interesting.

      Do not be afraid of showing your affection. Be warm and tender, thoughtful and affectionate. Men,people in general are more helped by sympathy, than by service, love is more than money, and a kind word will give more pleasure than a present.
