I had a dream…
until I woke up and prepared an action plan;
a step-by-step guide to bring forth the best of who I am.
Now I am living the dream…
Scaling New Heights,
balancing my fears and my hubris
amid tightropes and high beams.
It’s a thin line I walk every day
but I know the way…
To Fulfill My Dreams.
A dream without action
is like a seed that has yet to be planted;
it will bear no fruit.
Although it’s seldom seen
success is a fruit.
As odd as it seems…
A dream without action is merely a wish.
What sense does it make to dream up
what remains to be seen
only to daydream?
Without vision, you’ll perish;
clairvoyance is a gift.
If you have the sensory insights of a dreamer,
never lose sight of the sights unseen;
take accountable action,
don’t let your dreams
Success is a relic
relished few and far between,
because action is not as dreamy
as the dream.

Hi, Stevie(?). 🙂
I came across your poem in the reader and as it happens this month’s theme at my poetry linkup challenge is success, so I thought I’d let you know about it, you know, in case you want to participate and hook up with other poets you have yet to meet.
Memee’s Poetry Parties
Current Party — this link only functions when there is a party actively happening.
Have a wonderful day!
Thanks for the invite, I’d love to meet the poets and read their poems 🙂
I’m looking forward to participating in your poetry linkup.
Stevie, thank you for the wonderful comments and the follow! I am really trying to grow this event. I am hoping it will eventually become a hub where poets can challenge themselves and develop friendships. I know that I am growing and learning with every linkup. I want it to do for others what it is doing for me 🙂
I just reread this yet again. I so love it and am thrilled that you included it at the link up so others can read and get inspired by your artful skill. Sincerely, this poem is perfection… or rather, a success! 😉
Thank you Memee! You are far too kind 🙂
No, I’m not. I’m just telling you what I think/feel. That is not a kindness, it is a truth. 🙂
I like the line “dream without action is a merely a wish”! Nice peom
Thank you 🙂
