Just as life is not what it seems, same goes for the meaning of one's dreams...

The dreamer of a hundred dreams

Sees failure in his most tried reach

Sees nothing where hope is usually found

And expects to never get up off the ground

The dreamer of a hundred dreams

Thinks life is always what it seems

Thinks there is no reason to fight

Because as "weak" as he is, there's not enough time

The dreamer of a hundred dreams

Wishes he had more self-esteem

So he could see the end

Instead of figuring out where to begin

However this dreamer is more than he thinks

If only his dreams and thoughts would sync

He needs his stumbles, falls, and hauls,

For that is how experience can install

The pride, the appreciation that builds inside,

What is success without knowing the cries,

The tries, and the fight that got you there

Perhaps the dream starts before one is aware...
