The Dream


The dream,
Though seemingly lifeless,
Still has a pulse.
The desire,
Though hidden in the shadows,
The strength
Though shaken,
Still stands.
The confidence,
Though bruised,
Waits to reappear.
The dream,
Though oppressed,
Still lives,
For the never-ending need for purpose
Is the driving force of its survival.
