we abound in number, name
and computer bound significance
is by our dreams that we are known
by our dreams that we are driven
by our dreams that we are tethered
the captain of a ship
it is by our attachment to a dream
that we are sometimes
drawn to our demise
poet might put it, "You are your dreams"
a small man is betrayed by small dreams
a great man by great ones
sharing of a dream
is apt description
of what is meant by "love"
without a dream
is thus alone
adrift and without
to be truly alive.
