Dreams are not what we do while we sleep,
It’s the seed of what can become while we are awake.
Having a family, excelling in my calling and career.
Leaving a positive imprint on a heart,
Making an impact in the world.
Enlightening a mind, setting it free to fly.
I can sleep on it and wish it comes true,
Or make my dreams a reality by taking action and following through.
It’s been said, “Nothing comes to a dreamer but sleep.”
That is not an option for me,
Insomnia has kicked in.
Sleeping has cost me life.
A sacrifice I am no longer willing to give.
I am awake and I choose to become the dream, achieve, build and live.
