Amen Jamir


Dreams Comes Slow


Dreams comes slow-
They are never built
out of a day's whimsy!
I've seen it come to those-
who toiled with grit;
who stumbled,
yet rose with courage;

Why? A pearl never
formed in an oyster
without being vexed
by splinters;
Nor a rose bud
bloomed in a garden,
out of desire
to pluck it for a lover;

Dreams are built
with sweat and labour,
cemented by faith
and courage;
Dreams comes true
they come slow-
They come to those
who believe and hope.

Poem of the Day

poet Edgar Allan Poe

Kind solace in a dying hour!
Such, father, is not (now) my theme-
I will not madly deem that power
Of Earth may shrive me of the sin
