Dreams At The Other Side by Amongmen

  1. Dreams are our what if’s
    A chance to embark on the possibilities of our talents
    For some, dreams are more sacred
    Embedded in meanings not of the spiritual
    But of hope, dispensation, and wine which quenches thirst

    Dreams are an endless void
    Continually stacked as we learn about the world
    A sword in the hands of an untrained
    Whose swing could cut or leave one cut
    Hence our unease at pursuit

    Dreams are at the other side of a door
    Though powerful enough to rip the door apart it waits
    For our mind to keep us up, and our body to lose sleep
    And as we draw closer to the door,
    It opens
    To reveal a barren land with our name
    Which can quench our taste?
