The prompt was “A Dream Come True” which had me suddenly grappling with my lofty dreams up close against my sometimes mundane realities day to day. I coach people through this, yet here I am, struggling to find my balance while I dare to tip toe ever forward toward my wildly improbable future.
Dreaming almost sometimes seems to make it even harder to be in the present moment because it is utterly droll by comparison to our whimsical, detailed, dreams which hold all the promise of our perpetual and gratifying fulfillment.
I’m still learning how to navigate the world while navigating with my heart instead of my head or my automatic programmed responses.
We had three minutes on the clock and this is what came out.
Thanks for reading. -Brian
Dreams are real but the coming true is a cliche
At least that’s what all the people say
Are they the ones who never try
And pile up regrets and cigarettes before they die?
Or did they try and try and just utterly fail?
And so dreams coming true makes their mind flail
Or are they just on the verge of a dream coming true
And stopping now would be crazy, like walking in glue
Just one more step, keep lifting up that shoe
Keep walking, keep dreaming, perhaps that’s the way through.
