A Dream Seller - Poem by M. Asim Nehal

I sell my dreams to the lights of the day
And wait patiently to see the results.
Some returns with honors and some for fine-tuning
Nevertheless I get encouragement to pursue more.
Like bait thrown in a river or pond to catch a fish,
I let my ideas to go and hit the target.

Luck swings like pendulum
Between success and failure
And I get inspiration to see more dreams
Results are pushed to secondary
with every single step is measured correctly
And I get compensation accordingly.

In this trade, sure will gain enough experience
that will worth more than millions and
with age and maturity I will prosper
my dreams will have many offers.

I fear the day when I am out of stock
what will happen to my day and night.
Who will buy my dreams?

    Your dreams are not to sell.
    Dreams are - to become true!
    God takes them for Himself -
    their fulfillment He gives to you!

    A very novel way of presenting your dreams! To be a trader in dreams and making profit out of it seems a flourishing business! As anyone, you also fear the day when you run out of stock of dreams! A lovely write and you get a 10 Asim! (Report) Reply

    I must thank you for taking up the idea of selling dreams in a new mould. Enjoyed reading the poem which sets the stage with the very first line:
    I sell my dreams to the lights of the day
    I fear the day when I am out of stock
