About the Poem

I believe that suicide and depression, when not medically induced, are the direct result of not having a Dream to propell you into tomorrow. Take away a person's Dreams, and you take away their life.

And when Annette left my life, I realized yet another Truth about Dreams. The 'little' Dreams most of us are raised to pursue really don't mean that much.

My Dreams

My Dreams have always
Been simple dreams.
Nothing elaborate.

I wanted to be rich.
I wanted to be famous.
I wanted to be a benefit
to mankind.
But most of all, I just wanted
to be with You.

All my Dreams have turned to Nightmares.
