Never hold a wish too tight,
let it flow to reach new heights.
If it flies too far from sight,
precise timing was not right.
Keep your goals away from ears,
do not share till it is here,
to prevent another’s fears,
from applauding your failed tears.
Allow wants to have a say,
visualize them on most days,
not too much or they may sway,
be consistent so they stay.
Let hopes happen easily,
do not focus eagerly,
if your heart feels peacefully,
they will appear serenely.
It is fine to set dreams free,
let them fly within the breeze,
like the waves out in the sea,
they return if meant to be.
