Dreamers and drifters

March 15, 2019

Without Dreamers and Drifters our world’s axis can askew,

gaining knowledge without dreaming is a detrimental brew.

Do not believe the scholars, who reach for exactness in every line;

draw deep from your own conclusions, a dream will do just fine!

It takes courage to follow your heart, if you know not what to do,

whilst the ignorant followers simply do, what they are told is true.

Dare to dream of destinies, that the Drifters only know;

fear ye not, if you drift off, to daydreaming on the go.

As every dream will take you, where you wished the day before,

the hopes, the wishes and miracles, away from this daily chore.

Dare not wake the Dreamer, for they cruise sweet distant land;

for a sudden jolt of reality, will have them perish in quicksand.

Praise Drifters in the corner, for we know they do not just sleep;

instead, rejoice in a moment of re-creation as eyes begin to peep.

Share their wisdom from beyond this bore, hear a story-line unfold,

let the Dreamer and the Drifter, celebrate the creativity of the bold!
