A Dream to Fly

A Dream to Fly

A Poem by Ezekiel Silver

Year poem was written: 2013


      The human soul thirsts for a desire,

            a desire we can never have.

      Our hearts long for tremendous liberty,

            no longer enslaved by land.


      The mind wishes for great wings,

           ones we can outstretch afar.

      Mankind craves for the great breeze,

           felt amongst the clouds.


     Deep within we beg for them,

           seeing it in dreams.

    We want this dream to be real,

           a dream to fly.

Well written Ezekiel. We always desire to get what is beyond our reach because chasing it gives us enough understanding about its value.

Dreaming is good. It is a motivation for us to strive for the best. If a person has no dream, there's nothing which will drive him to succeed.
Nice work. Keep writing.

This is absolutely sweet and so calming to read. Your message is powerful and perfectly encrusted into each stanza. Freedom, a true dream of mankind, a way for mankind to be like that of a bird and fly high into the open air. Free as a bird, as the saying goes.

This was an definitely an interesting read.

I like the flow of the poem because it's quite peaceful like it would be to fly
