Some people say their dreams out loud

dream-of-icarus

Some people say their dreams out loud
but I prefer them to enshroud
in darkness, rain, storm and cloud,
with my strength and might endowed.

Some people yearn for gods, spirits
but I prefer my mind and wits.
No exceptions my rule admits.
In my soul no deity fits.

Some people search for happiness
but I prefer to digress
from all the honor and success
to a place with no address.

Some people crave for love and sense
but I prefer to dispense
with such pride and pretense
at my own risk and expense.

Some people want to be great
but I prefer my own fate.
For better days I cannot wait.
To live today – it is too late.

*Painting “Dream of Icarus” by Sergey Solomko

    Great! I know that´s your mind the innermost. Your title can be: Some People say their Dreams aloud.—say it out loud: that´s Chinese grammar structure.

    Words are meant to be played with how you please. That’s the beauty of poetry, it shouldn’t be structured, should be what you want it to be.

    • I’m an incurable rhyme-addict. For me structure is essential. It is that little something that differentiates poetry from a completely random, nonsensical everyday cackle. It adds a subtle rhythm to the expressed thoughts. Thus making them even more playful. 🙂
