Do I have a dream? I don’t believe I do
If someone asked me I would be stumped
You might pity the dreamless me- but don’t
Dreams kill. They occupy a whole person’s life
They distract them and fill them with crazed obsession
They never end well, whether accomplished or not

I do want to have a plan for life
But a plan and a dream are different
I do not want a castle in the cloud
So as I build the foundation, the bricks can fall on me
Or worse, once on my cloud I realize too late
That the air is too thin
