Poems about Daring to Dream
There are two kinds of dreams. There are dreams that we have while asleep and dreams that we have while we are awake. What is the connection between the two types? Both kinds of dreams are about the yearnings that are held deep inside us. Some of these desires are so secret that we dare not share them even with our closest friends. Those of us that dare to put our dreams down on paper are showing the courage and faith that they will come true.

Hold fast to dreams
For if dreams die
Life is a broken-winged bird
That cannot fly.
Hold fast to dreams
For when dreams go
Life is a barren field
Frozen with snow.Latest Shared Story
I so get it. Dreams are hope to a lot of us. I've heard it said that before you get it you have to dream it. I think when we stop dreaming we stop reaching, and when we stop reaching we stop...
Take this kiss upon the brow!
And, in parting from you now,
Thus much let me avow —
You are not wrong, who deem
That my days have been a dream;
Yet if hope has flown away
In a night, or in a day,
In a vision, or in none,
Is it therefore the less gone?
All that we see or seem
Is but a dream within a dream.
I stand amid the roar
Of a surf-tormented shore,
And I hold within my hand
Grains of the golden sand —
How few! yet how they creep
Through my fingers to the deep,
While I weep — while I weep!
O God! Can I not grasp
Them with a tighter clasp?
O God! can I not save
One from the pitiless wave?
Is all that we see or seem
But a dream within a dream?Latest Shared Story
Most of what we learn we learn from others. It is the moments we ourselves have to live and learn that we realize most of what we are taught or preached have been lies. We all have to live...
4. DreamsGraduation Message For Son
You're the driver of your destiny,
Passenger of none,
In control and looking forward
Of things that must be done.
You're the captain of your ship,
Plans to help you get there
And freedom to bring you home.
You're the pilot of your airplane;
Fly as high as you can.
Life is what you make it,
So follow your plan.
Hopes and dreams not yet reached,
Motivation on display.
A journey full of ups and downs,
Experience gained each day.
Direction is always forward;
Backwards remains the same.
Discover your authentic self,
And have a willingness to change.
Enhance each quality given.
Develop talents you were blessed.
Transform your heart into one of gold,
And believe in more than yourself.
Mistakes are made; we move on.
We get back on our feet.
I'm here to support you always
Should you ever need me.
For every start there is a finish.
For every beginning there is an end.
Hold onto your accomplishments,
And even tighter to your friends.
5. My Dream
I dream of a church on a beach,
Where all go to preach
I think of that beautiful beach,
Which I know is beyond my reach
I dream of a nation
Without any dissension
Where peace and prosperity rules
Over the ocean blues
I dream of taking a risk
Of touching the blazing asterisk
Although it is only a dream
I wish to travel the realm
I have a dream
To eat an icy cream
Which is far more luscious that any treat
In this human world of greed
I dream that I'm Megaman
Soaring the skies like Superman
Yet as sharp as Batman
Mixed with the humor of Spiderman
I know my delusion
Is nothing but a mere illusion
Yet to realize them I'll try my best
And on God I leave the rest
What happens to a dream deferred?
Does it dry up
like a raisin in the sun?
Or fester like a sore—
And then run?
Does it stink like rotten meat?
Or crust and sugar over—
like a syrupy sweet?
Maybe it just sags
like a heavy load.
Or does it explode?Latest Shared Story
A wonderful poem by Langston Hughes, some dreams drift off with the morning mist, others come through if one persists.....
A dream differed is a dream put on hold
until the time comes for...
If you have a dream
that won’t go away
that gnaws at your toes
with each waking day.
That sings beneath notes
and swirls between stars.
From lines in great books
it thrashes and gnarls.
From cinema screens
it leaps along light
and twists your insides
and stalks you at night.
Then give it attention.
Tame that wild dream.
It’s there for a reason
yet to be seen.
A beast of the future
only you own.
Don't let it escape
into the unknown.
Train it with care
and boost its esteem.
Spotlight it brightly
so it can be seen.
Or dreams can turn nasty
tire and groan.
if left all alone.
The beast never dies
just shrinks and goes cold.
A lone, solemn dream
growing weary and old.
So feed it with strength
Believe that it’s real
Nurture with love
And trust how it feels
Fight the dream-bruisers
and splatterers of hope
who'll be waiting for you.
Feel the roar rumble.
Hear every shout.
It’s your beast of a dream
just dying to get out.Latest Shared Story

Life And Dreams
I sleep in the clouds, dream in the sky.
I'll keep dreaming as life passes me by.
I think my dreams keep me sane.
I dream of happiness, a life without pain.
Some people say I'm stuck in this place
and I'll never go anywhere,
but in my dreams I've already been there.
I know someday I'll have to wake up,
but I feel the real world is more like a nightmare.
I'm safe in my closed-eye wonderland.
This poem goes to all the dreamers that understand.
No matter what they say...
keep your dreams, but don't dream your life away.Latest Shared Story
Don't you worry! Every difficulty and bad time comes in your/your loved one's life for a reason. Have you ever been to a railway station? When you find out that the train is not on time, do...
Pursue Your Goals
Do dare to dream your desired dream
No matter how impossible it may seem
Do not get deterred by what others say
Stay focused and you will find your way
But remember the road will not be easy, it's an uphill task
So be honest to yourself, and you need to sincerely ask:
Do you have it in you to do everything that it takes?
Like rising after each fall and learning from the mistakes
Do you have the patience when the road seems much too long?
Needless to say, you need to remain resolved and be strong
Do you have the courage to continue and endure?
When the outcome is unknown, nothing is for sure
Do you have the tenacity to carry on till the end?
For on that much of your success will depend.
10. Only A DreamDreaming Of A Better World
I'm living in my own little world.
I'm happy there, it's okay.
It's much more fun than the real one,
For the sun shines every day.
It's a world with no hate or sorrow.
In my world there is no pain.
There's no rich, no poor, no kings or queens.
In my world only our Lord reigns.
It's a world of many colours,
A world where everyone's free.
It's a world of love and harmony,
A world of compassion and tranquility.
I know my world's not the real one.
It's only my world of make-believe.
But it's a world I often visit,
If it's only in my dreams.
11. DreamsThe Power Of Sleep And Dreams
We slip beneath the pillow's spell
And drift from heaven and into hell
To lose control of conscious mind
The secrets of our soul to find.
A timeless journey fills our being.
The blind man now becomes all-seeing.
The lonely now becomes the lover.
The childless wife a loving mother.
Reflection of our dormant fears
Once woken may reduce to tears.
With sleep the master free to prey
On untold thought which nightly stray.
Self-Motivation And Courage
She wanted to fly up in the sky.
With big dreams in her eyes and passion in her mind...
She never looked back; she never looked down.
She kept on walking, even on a rocky ground.
She felt broken and almost gave up midway,
But it was her courage that supported her night and day.
She wanted to share her emotions and feelings
That were making her weak with problem dealings.
She tried to express in thousand ways she found,
But thought it easy to just shup up and lie down.
She never knew those hurdles were making her strong.
She just thought her decision went wrong.
But she continued to take her baby steps...
Toward the dreams she once felt.
With passion in her mind and courage in her heart,
She was again ready to build her own dream art...
13. DreamsPoem Encouraging You To Keep Dreaming
The smallest, most simple dream
Is worth being achieved.
The smallest grain of faith
Is actually all it takes.
Having one person who believes in you
Is a major help, too.
Never give up on any of your dreams.
With faith, love, and support, you can do anything.
If you have to stand alone,
Your dreams will still be your own.
If someone shares a dream with you,
Work with them so it will come true.
Do not let anything stand in your way;
Do not worry about what pessimists say.
Your dreams can come true someday;
You know exactly what it takes.
It is an early morning
I need an island in the sea,
Away from you away from me,
Beyond the waves beyond the wind,
Beyond the world that we live in,
Under skies of shining stars,
Away from lights and noisy cars,
Above the egos and the stress,
Beyond the world we made a mess.
A place for me a place for you,
An earth that's green a sky that's blue,
A place for you a place for me,
An open sky and light blue sea,
With dreams as solid as the ground,
A place like this I think I've found.
A happy thought no one can take it,
A place like this is where we make it.
I need a mountain in the sky,
Just beneath where angels fly,
Where snowflakes falling on the ground,
Is the most disruptive sound,
Above the waves above the wind,
Above the world that we live in,
Above my life above the stress,
Where I can lay it all to rest,
Under skies of falling snow,
Just above the world below,
Just above the trees and birds,
A place I can't describe in words.
An empty place that's so appealing,
How'd I get this stupid feeling?
Bad ideas come and go,
But none as potent as the snow,
I need no island in the sea,
Just the things that make me me.
I need no mountain in the sky,
Just to laugh try not to cry,
Forget these far off fantasies,
And manifest as realities,
Reach out and grab it in good time,
Seize the moment make it mine,
Catch the moment make it last.
Just be grateful when it's past.
Sensations as real as the wind,
Try not to be sad when it ends.
A happy thought no one can take it,
A time like this is when we make it.
I need an island in the sea,
And all of that which makes me me.Latest Shared Story
I love the personal longing for that special place. John
15. Wishful ThinkingWanting The World To Be A Better Place
I wish for the day when a man is a man,
when the flaws of another aren't gold in his hand.
When the bread in his kitchen is ample for meals,
any extra is given without contracts or deals.
When the waste of a nation is a feast for the swine,
when compassion and honor are traits of mankind.
When we know we are human from the sadness we bare
when a life is extinguished anytime...anywhere.
When we prosper as brothers without culture or creed,
without hate or dissension, without anger and greed.
I wish for the moment when humanity wins,
when people aren't strangers but equals and friends.
When we break from a history of fear and regret,
and we stop looking back and start looking ahead.
When a lie is a weapon, when truth is a shield,
and knowledge a blade we can sharpen and wield.
When we vow to remember and dare to forget,
when we follow our path without judgement and threat.
I wish for the day we all read this and knew,
the reader's to blame, it can never come true...

Loved this heart touching poem. I am 14 and analyzing and reading this for an assignment. You have inspired me to start writing poetry as well.
I don't talk.
My lips part and air pushes out,
but the sound must not fit,
because my thoughts are so big.
So I don't try to talk.
My thoughts must be too good for
words, for the air, for my lips.
But they are just right for paper.
My thoughts flow on paper.
They are just big enough.
So I don't talk;
17. DreamsPoem About The Magic Of Dreams
There's a place where I go that no one else knows,
Where mysteries abound and excitement grows.
A place out of reach of any man's hands,
Safely secluded in a far away land
Beyond the grasp of those who may plunder
The wealth of its power and its life changing wonder.
I go alone to my secret place, never leaving a trace
For someone to follow and discover my space
Where I keep my secrets, my fears, and my regrets
Away from the world and all of its threats.
It's mine and mine alone!
The only place I can call my own.
I treasure the moments spent in this realm
Where anything is possible and I'm at the helm.
This place I describe is all that it seems ...
It's a magical place I call my dreams.
Visiting Old Memories
I often lie awake at night
While the world is fast asleep
And take a stroll down memory lane
Where ghosts and shadows meet.
I see you in the distance,
I hear you call my name.
And for one moment time stands still
As I hold you once again.
What Places Do You Remember Fondly From Childhood?
My feet pressed against the dusty roads.
The cool breeze skimmed my face.
The air's fragrance, a mixture of fruit and flowers, traveled through my nose.
Down the slopes I would race,
My hair spreading all around me.
The dogs raced down too.
This fantasy became reality,
A dream come true.
Some people may just call it a walk or a hike,
But it is independence for me.
Some people prefer to take a bike, but I let my soul fly free
On my grandpa's ranch.
Across the trees,
Across the flower patch,
Through the breeze.
This is the place I love to go.
This is the place my soul flies free.
So many memories I cherish it holds.
This is where I get to see my family.
My grandpa's ranch, my favorite place in the world.
20. Crystal StairsJourney In Our Life
Crystal stairs, "Where will you lead,
offering steps in our time of need...
a luminous path from here it seems,
a crystal spiral of lucid dreams?"
Unlike crystallized memories destined never to grow;
you call us toward a future beyond what we know.
Like footsteps heard faintly in ones ear.
A journey of remembering held so dear.
Beyond imagination in a forgotten land,
crystal climbers reach out with a loving hand.
Lifting our hearts like magic it seems,
this staircase of crystal truly is made of dreams.
