Aimless Dreamers

Aimless Dreamers

A Poem by E.A. Spain

I live in a world of aimless dreamers

They tell me to become one of them

Their pointless dreams are the key to their "happiness"

An oasis for their aching souls

I dream aimlessly to evade my fears

I dream aimlessly to escape the tears

I dream aimlessly to hold onto peace

I dream aimlessly but I reach no reach

I dream aimlessly, I suppose to live

I dream aimlessly when I close my eyes

I dream aimlessly for a positive

I dream aimlessly, although I die

I dream aimlessly

Although I know

That aimless dreamers in the end..

Have nothing to show

And this lesson is to be learned

An aimless dreamer neither gains anything, nor earns.

I don’t knowso much — to dream is to open a whole new world and see possibilities and chances waiting to be taken it makes us live in the present and spirit led - so much more to be gained than in the flesh- wonderful words🌹

I respect all opinions and specific perspectives uniquely depicted. That is what poetry is all about.
But here, concerning the subject-matter, I would rather say that dreamers are of two kind: there are those that have dreams and desires and do nothing proactive about it to acquire the object of their dreams; and there are those that have dreams and desires accompanied by a vision, which they arduously work toward realizing into manifestation and fruition.
And, therefore, it is important to objectively distinguish between the two type of dreamers.

I disagree.
"And this lesson is to be learned
An aimless dreamer neither gains anything, nor earns."
We need to dream and we need hope. If we lose either. We become another sheep being led to the slaughter. Better to be the free wolf. Keep going forward. Thank you for sharing the amazing poetry. You made me think this morning.
