Dare To Dream - Poem by Comfort Ndlovu

Dare to dream and defy all odds of this earth,
Cease not 'till your last breath -
'till the advent of that relentless rival dubbed 'death'!
Cease not to dream 'till you leave this cursed earth!

Dare to dream and dream and dream
And always stay on top like cream!
Shout loud above all scathing screams:
'The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams! '

Dare to dream and reach great heights,
Work hard through toilsome days and consoling nights,
For, all heights by great men reached and kept
Were not attained by sudden flight
But by toiling upwards in the night,
Whilst their compatriots slept!

Dare to dream...
Not daydream...!
Work and walk in patience though the journey be long,
Dream and do things, not dream them all day long!

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Dreams are there to be birthed into reality. They were planted for us to dig out and bring to the surface.
