Basket full of dreams

 

 

I've placed all my dreams in a basket

Yet they seep before they can be weave

So I re-shelved them

For the wall that lays before me

Wisdom states never to set them in one place

But I don't know where to store them

Nor whom can I trust to hold them

For their gone in the wind before I let go

This revolving door has become a nightmare

I'm unwilling to resolve

Unless I weave the basket with everything I know

Isn't life just filled with dreams and dissappointments Mauricio and then out of all those experiences we become who we are, grasping at the strings holding on to find those inspirations that keep us going, it ain't easy at times but that is why we have this strength to overcome to still belive in ourselves. Your words are a reminder of how not only do we struggle but how we survive...

Potent!
Life can sometimes seems void of understanding and yet we always strive to fight it.
It is a battle but poignancy is never far away :)

reminds me of something I read about 'the tapestries of our life that we weave'', your poem reminds me of the threads of our life, be they dreams, relationships, and some, your journey both makes and fills your basket........super poem

Dreams are precious and delicate things. They must be taken care of, so as not to be lost. May you find the time and place to make each one come true.
