Dreamer


I have always been a dreamer
And I dream to escape all I know
Cause in this hard & cold world
Only in my dreams my emotions do I dare show

From the moment I close my eyes
This world gently fades away
And when I open them again
I find myself in the place I wish to stay

For in my dreams I am happy
In my dreams my mind is free
In this world that I created
I can finally be me

But though I am happy
I know that this place is not real
And once I awake from my paradise
I must hide again the emotions I feel

I am a hopeless dreamer
In a world of cruel, hard facts
And this world will continue to crush me
Until my mind finally cracks

But in that moment I will not tremble
Nor will I be sad or afraid
Cause I know in that instant
That all the debt collected will be paid

I will live forever in my world of dreams
At last I will have my peace
And in a world created from my longing
In this place my pain will cease

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
