Let the Dreamers Who Sleep Beware--By Joe Flach--United States

Let the Dreamers Who Sleep Beware

Lost in thoughts about what might have been
As the opportunity of today passes by
Regret from inactions is a mortal sin
Paralysis from fear prevents giving it a try

Security from harm keeps bad things away
While also keeping experiences from getting inside
Sometimes you should charge into the foray
While the mundane run off to hide

Scars may be your only reward
Tears, like a river, may flow
But to keep your journey moving forward
You cannot be afraid to go

Dreams are just realities yet to come true
Achieved only by those who dare
Take my hand; I’ll go there with you
And let the dreamers who sleep beware

  1. Hi, Joe, I agree, dreamers who activate them are what made this world. How could a so-called "dreamer" just allow them to remain dormant? To even just "write it all down" is at least something............ great poem that inspires..... S

  2. Wow, Joe, I thought your creative poem here was astounding! I really enjoyed reading it tonight.

  3. Wonderful poem Joe! A great read! Best wishes, Chris~
