I have a dream

That tomorrow shall be greater than today

The Luther in me is awaken

Madiba never gave up.

My dream

My hope for a new beginning

My escape from the vortex of darksomeness

The tomorrow I live in my today.

My garment of hope

Sewn with the thread of expectation

Worn as an air cover from the bombing of gloomy thoughts

When the achings of my past naivete assail me.

The circuitous traverse in the cavernous places is over

Going somewhere whilst going nowhere has ended

I am no longer lost in the maze of despondency

Where I wandered, wondered and suffered needlessly.

Houdini has broken the chains of restrainment

He has been teleported from the painful now

I am back to the future

Dreaming and doing is the name of my game.

Without a dream, you are bereft of life

It’s like playing Romeo without a Juliet

What is the fun in watching Tom without Jerry

No Rambo, no 1st blood.

The wheels of success are spinning

I advance daily ignoring the wind, the dust and the rain

I overcome them by God, passion, and hard work

The Conductor has taken charge of his orchestra.


What is your dream?

What is your life purpose?

What makes you passionate?

What has this Poem stirred in you or reminded you of.

Endless questions that require answers.

God will help us actualize our dreams. The Holy Spirit will give us the courage to take the first step in the direction of our dreams in Jesus name

If you need something in life, you must have a dream or desire for it. Set your goals or aims, then add hard work to it, with God on your side, you should be able to achieve your dreams.

Every body has a dream. But some are not actualized. We pray God to help us to realise our dreams. Nice one dad.

Dreams are thought with purpose. The life of a man is incomplete without dreams. Dreams are God’s follow through for us. It keeps us pushing even amidst trials and temptations.
