dreams

Dreaming is a part of life. Everyone dreams, but does it actually happen? Most dreams just fade away and don't come back to mind until you have one foot in the grave or feel some type of remorse for your future.does anyone bother to make their dream a reality? They walk around saying they have their life together, doing what they got to do to make it in this world, but is it that hard? Why do you have to put your dreams aside to put food on the table, Just because society says you should have something stable or that the color of my skin prevents me from being me. Like Rosa Parks said "knowing what must be done does away with fear" you don't have to be afraid of the unknown God is well aware of where you are and of every step he is asking you to take. So I can't stop myself for wanting to speak my mind on paper and in prayer, just like I can't stop the sun from rising everyday. No can help dreaming, but can they help living with forgotten dreams?
