Hold Fast Your Dreams

from by Marla Mase



inspired by Louise Driscoll's poem 'Hold Fast Your Dreams'


Hold Fast Your Dreams
Within your heart
Hold Fast your dreams
In one sacred spot

Where sheltered so
Will thrive and grow
Where doubt and fear
Are not

Hold Fast Your Dreams
Within your heart
And keep them safe
In your world a part
With wishes that
Have not come true
Let hope and magic work for you

Hold Fast Your Dreams
Hold Fast Your Dreams

(spoken word)
Maybe she did see things differently with that birthmarked eye. They had no idea what she saw, what they were blind to, and would always be kept from, of her world. It was a door locked to them forever.

You see, with one eye life was exactly as it was explained to her. But With the other, she saw into, through, above their world.

So Keep a place within your heart
A place for dreams to start

Hold Fast Your Dreams
