The Paradox of the Dreamer

The Dreamer "knows" that their aspirations are destined to be reality

Optimisism flows through their veins just by thinking about their self determined "fate"

But when the chance comes to leap

To leave their sense of security 

To prove that they are strong enough

To catch their dream

They freeze

They convince themselves that it is "irrational" and not worth chasing

And they go on with their boring job

Boring demeanor

And boring life

Only truly living in their petty day dreams

And until they realize that the world owes them nothing

they will continue to be nothing but a Dreamer

This poem is about: 
Our world
