A Poem by afra

I can be the reason of your smile or tears

I can give you hope or let you die in fears

I can snatch your smile

Or can make you happy, but for a while

Some give up some follow me

But in their minds I'll always be

Somethink I am real, some think  I am fake

Somethink I am a big mistake

The people who believe me with their heart and soul

I can help them achieve their goal

Some people love me, some people hate

But I'll haunt them every night, I'll not fade

I can give you smile or scream

I can be described in a word called dream

Ok Afra...This is just absolutely outrageous!!! How dare you take such a simple word and turn it into a symphony, a masterpiece, I feel like I have been beatin to the ground by your words!!!! I am gonna call the police about this type of harsh treatment!!! LoL Seriously though...I just don't get it...How do you make such brilliance like this...You damn Canadiens, why do you have to be better at everything?!?! LoL Afra this is just exactly what I am talking about...When you put your mind seriously to the grindstone look at how razor sharp it becomes!!! Keep this up and I might have to call you consistantly great...Please don't do that to me!!! LoL

you forgot to put the spaces between the "some think". wow yeah ! dreams...you gotta go beyond yourself if you want to achieve them, that's what i'm still learning sort of, you got to work and work to get to them and stay positive !! great job hon !

You are a natural!! awesome personification ...

The personification of the dream state that is there to haunt us, teach us, guide us and who knows what, great theme/aspect

Posted 8 Years Ago

What a beautiful personification of a dream... what we hold to can come to life, and yes, it can satisfy or break us apart... So moving and insightful!

The reviews below me have said it all, but I'll input my words anyway :)
Dreams are a fascinating thing. I tried to study them once, but they simply can't be grasped enough to give any cold, hard facts. Your view on them was a treat to hear. Thanks for sharing, Afra :)

(by the way, your name is just gorgeous. Uncommon, but not weird. Love it. Sorry, random, but every time I visit your profile that's what I think. Now you know!)
