Let Me Dream

Let Me Dream

A Poem by barleygirl
"

a wild optimistic hair . . .

"


Snap-crackle-pop the moment our eyes open
wild horses loping now impossible to rope in
newsflash: every desire becomes intensified
with so many options we’ll never decide!

A genie flutters around with a mind to unfetter
soon everyone’s dreams grow bigger and better
with the wave of his wand banish war and hate
while love and tolerance freely proliferate.

Best intentions are encouraged and amplified
deliriously dancing we can find no downside
helpfulness and good will naturally expand
long-awaited compromise links right and left hand.

Evaporate the gap pitting common and upper crust
little by little we can all let go of angry distrust
I truly never thought we’d see the day
please don’t let my dream be blown away.

I loved the dream, not for oneself but for all of us. The world becomes a better place. I wish the genies do come and play their magic. I loved the verse, Best intentions are amplified and encouraged. The world will turn better place. This dreaming better than resigning and going hopeless. For me, this poem is more like a prayer than a dream reflecting your version of a better world. Dream on Margie, see me beside you dreaming the same..
The content and the craft both are equally grabbing. Can't say which was better of the two.I loved your choice of words in the rhyming.
Beautifully penned dream!

Dreams are integral to life, I always say...better to dream than to be lost in the maze...hold on to the dreams for they keep your heart and soul free as multi-coloured ribbons on a summer's breeze, hugs x

I like this idea. Or rather set of ideas. A poem that is like playing with the TV remote. Asking pertinant questions about what you see and how it could be changed.
Pithy and wise with an edge to the wit.

Now that idea scares me. In the same way that Hal from 2001 did. Or self drive cars.

Yeah . . . self-drive cars . . . that deserves a spoof piece of writing for sure!
Those who don't dream don't truly live... those who try to keep us from fluffing our dreams to keep us from failing are anchors we must cast away.

So just follow the lyrics that goes, "Dream on, dream on, dream until your dreams come true."

I can't stand people that tell others that they are too imaginative. Imagination is so important for everyone to have, not just children. If someone took my imagination and dreams away, I would be so depressed. Without imagination and dreams, you can't succeed because you'll have no desire to live and work at things.
I love this poem and I'm not sure if that is what you were trying to convey or not but it struck me hard. Thank you.

This is a wonderful example of how you can "let off steam" without getting "steamed up".
The pen may not always be mightier than the sword, but quieter words can often say more than the blasts of trumpets.
Let us keep our dreams and our musings - they, at least, are still our own. (((Hugs)))

we need to dream...and we hope to hang on to the feeling we can reach it...not to be bottled up like a frustrated genie....wished can be fulfilled....and it will if we are allowed to go for it---these days dreams don't get very far---the chosen few sleep well, the rest of us, just restless.
