Dreams Are For Dreamers

You can feel your powerlessness

Inevitably slowing your pace

Who are you deceiving?

You can’t win this race

You chase like there’s no tomorrow

A will that cannot be broken

Only to lose, to collapse,

With the feet that couldn’t be shaken

Dreams are for dreamers

The word itself tells that

Before hard reality sets in,

Give up the dream you never had.

I think that this was one of my better poems because it actually rhymes.
