Close your eyes and spread your wings.
Make a wish and dream good dreams.
Don't ever say you'll never tell.
'Cause life is short and very frail.
Just be still and take a look.
Before you know it, you'll be hooked.
Then once in a blink of an eye,
You'll soon realize it was all a lie.
Up you look and there they're gone.
Why two days feel so long?
What was once there has disappeared.
Now, love is the one thing to fear.
Why say go when it was no?
You open your eyes only to find
What lied there was your sign.
So close your eyes and spread your wings.
Make a good wish and LIVE your dreams!

It described me. I prefer to be asleep than to be awake. Sometimes it just hurts too bad. Dreaming has became the joy of my life. Even though I know that I'm 'living' something that does not exist, it makes reality a little more bearable.

This poem touched me because when I was little I never lived with my mom or dad. My dad spent LIFE in jail and my mom did drugs. I lived with my uncle and grandmother. They verbally abused me and occasionally physically abused me. When we moved to a different neighborhood, the lady down the street instantly took me in as one of her own. My dream was to sing and become an actress. My uncle and grandmother would always say I couldn't sing, while my neighbor would say I had a beautiful voice. Now I'm in shows with my high school and some talent people are talking to me about real movies. I'm ecstatic and I know now that dreams really come true no matter what you're going through!
