"Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world are the ones who do." -Steve Jobs

Dreams, the only place where man truly can be free,
Where virility and humility run seamlessly together down an endless stream,
Where his desires and fantasies yield to no man's decree,
Where his compartmentalized thoughts run like melting ice cream,

Dreams, the catalyst of what man strives for,
What built his impenetrable castle in the sky,
What fuels his hunger to build to the castle door,
What facilitates his conscious to understand and comply,

Dreams, the motivator when man encounters adversity,
Motivator when the struggles of today contaminate his goals of tomorrow,
Motivator when his fire is extinguished by the whirlwind of reality,
Motivator when grief and despair erupt like Mount Kilimanjaro,

Dreams, the sanctuary of mans' priceless memories and keepsakes,
Sanctuary of the deepest of secrets never to reach the surface,
Sanctuary of hidden feelings large enough to fill gargantuan lakes,
Sanctuary of his unique personality and perspective protecting his true purpose,

Dreams, an undeniable part of mans' existence,
Dreams, a facet of man no one has permission to see,
Dreams, tolerate man's will with unfathomable insistence,
Dreams, the only place where man truly can be free.

The author's comments:
After watching "Dead Poet's Society" starring Robin Williams, I was inspired to write my own poem. Mr. Keating, Robin Williams, mentions the power of dreams to a fellow faculty member which really hit home with me. So this is my original work on dreams, enjoy!
