Without Dreams To Wish - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Without dreams to wish,
With them hoped to get...
What would be the purpose,
Of anyone wanting to achieve...
A better life to live?

With each step taken forward,
After passing tests.
And overcoming obstacles...
Faced on a daily basis.
Why would someone do this?
To waste motivation and initiative?

And with desires kept to improve.
What would be the purpose to do this,
If dreams to wish to eventually get...
Was not a part of this life,
As an experience to witness this.

Without dreams to wish,
With them hoped to get...
What would be the purpose?
I know my purpose is not meant,
To find and enjoy chaos and confusion.
That may be the reality many have wished,
For themselves to get as envisioned.
But they are 'not' my dreams,
To hope to want or have wished to get.
