Some dreams are meant to be crushed.
An ax to the heart-veins cut, arteries gushing.
Some thoughts are meant to be shushed.
A clamp to the tongue, invisible in the head.
Some dreams are meant to be crushed.
A club to the mind that yearns to be undone.

A/n: This week’s theme is for my “Thoughts” or statuses: “Three words say” 🙂

      Thank you so much for reading! There are times when you have to crush your dreams an embrace realty. At others you are lucky enough to turn them into realty. 🙂
