Dream,
You are too much
For this frail strength.
How can I make you
Less a dream?

Once I thought that dreams
Were fragile as the velvet dust
Upon the wings of moths.
But you are strong;
You lash unmercifully!

Perhaps I am too small
For this great dream;
And,
Failing to bring it into
Conscious being --
Will ever bear its scar.

This dream, unrealized,
Unsung,
Will take its vengeance
Crying for expression.

Dream,
How can I make you
Less a dream?
Be reality,
Or vanish into
Nebulous nothingness.

You are too much
For this frail strength.
