Pointless Dreaming

Pointless Dreaming

A Poem by Carey Lenehan

 

I dream about innumerable things
Vast and fervent wonderings
Gallant knights and days of old
Battles fought and heroes bold

I dream of love immeasurable
Perfection so compatible
Tenderness and strength entwined
In virtuosity combined

I dream of wisdom all around
Of smokeless, bloodless battlegrounds
Where bravery can never die
And happy children never cry

A world in which the sun shines through
A never ending dream of blue
Where all of us are rich and fed
And innocence is never dead

In my foolish, wistful dreams
Justice always intervenes
Perfect truth pervades our souls
And unity becomes our goal

Perfect lives and perfect loves
Clear blue seas, clean sky above
No one too rich and none too poor
Then I would dream for nothing more

this is a sigh of hope in a chaotic world. thank you for this... if not for beautiful works such as this running forth into my life from time to time, i'd probably become to nihilistic for my own good, lol. but really, the poem is quite lovely :)

Well written-- and not pointless. Even if we don't reach our dreams we still can get somewhere between the dream and reality. Maybe make some progress?
