Poet’s Dream

No parent encourages a poet’s dream

For how can you make a living

When no one is listening?

Page filled with a lovely dream

That shall never be reached.

  1. “No parent encourages a poet’s dream” — I know this feeling. Even if they mean well (they don’t want to see you struggle to make a living) it still stings.

    Don’t give up on your dream!
