Do You Still Dream?

Life sometimes hits us with a lot of trash and slowly kills our dreams, aspirations, ambitions. It is said, I can't remember who now, that the grave is filled with great men. Some of these greats were potentials that were never realised because they died. Don't go wishing you did this or did that! Dream big!! Pursue your dreams! Live a fulfiled life for God's sakes folks! Don't exist, live!! Happy new month...love ya'll
Do You Still Dream?
 
Good morning my dear.
Did dreams sweep through sleep
As you tossed and turned?
Did you dream of beauty;
Sweet, red lips, fair flushed skin,
Long legs, wide hips,
Protruding buttocks and breast?
Did you dream to touch
His heaving sweat slicked chest,
Flat stomach and beautiful hands?
Did you?

Did you dream of private jets
Twisting you to vacation,
Sipping champagne
And eating caviar;
Beautiful lady by your side
Ensconced in furs,
Designer sun glasses,
Gold necklaces and diamond rings;
Bought with your pocket
Paid with her body?
Did you?

Did you dream
Of finding a cure to AIDS,
Designing an app that aids,
Helping the people that ail,
Bringing the nation to the world stage?
Did you dream
Of the fire that burns,
The death toll and the mass graves,
The eyes that shuns,
The screams, echoes of scared babes?
Did you?

Did you dream
Of a book, your words penned;
Of a song, your heart sang;
Of a speech, your soul gave;
Of an art, your spirit created?
Did you?

Do you dream...
No more.
Soul dead and crushed;
Mind sundered and heart scorched;
Feelings fled and voices unheard;
Is world dark, dank and lifeless?
No cricket chirp;
No dancing wind;
No waving grass
Or hooked worm eying a fish?
Do you dream no more?
Do you?
