A Goal In Life - Poem by David Harris

What do you do
when you’ve pursued a dream
and finally
made it come true,
do you find another dream
and start pursuing it to?
The answer is simple
that is what you have to do.
Just keep pursuing all your dreams
no matter how wild
they may seem.
You have to have
a goal in life
and our dreams are that goal.
We have to pursue them,
each and everyone
to the bitter end,
for if we don’t
we will end up
with a wasted life.
I thought once
I’d given up mine,
but that was just a rest bite.
I came back
and pursued my dream
even harder than before
until finally
I made it happen
and made one of my dreams
come true.

    If we do not set goals and if we live without hopes we will soon sink into ontological emptiness or nothingness…the dreams makes us go…they are behind our existence..I find this poem full of deep thought…well composed… (Report)Reply

    I'm sure I heard somewhere a definition of happiness expressed thus: To have someone to love, somewhere to live and something to look forward to. Yes, the 'something to look forward to' is the dream, which you share with great passion in this wise and thoughtful poem. love, Allie ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ (Report)Reply

    A Man must always set goals, it's how we test our selves against others you know, better than the old days, when we used to go out and batter each other in a battle you know... Andy 10 (Report)Reply
