“Dreams”

Copyright Josephine Wall

everybody says it’s impossible
that dreams don’t come true and
wishes are idle distractions from reality

they don’t realize that believing that
hurts the soul immeasurably
causes damage we can’t repair

if people would only let themselves
dream and wish and hope
sometimes

maybe then they could learn
to be happy, to be fulfilled
to be truly alive
