No other has the mind to comprehend, the gall to renounce

To Dream
I dream yet I question if all it will ever be a dream. Will I be given the chance to see my desires I have nurtured in my mind manifested, will it become a reality... I ache within wanting to see what's in my mind with my eyes one day come to be... reflecting back on the time when I never imagined I'd get the opportunity to truly make my dream tangible, not just a virtual reality.

I envisioned yet I question if I am seeing things clearly... is what I visualize truly possible or a mere oasis in my mind... I love to have these things revealed so that I may understand... Seeing with my mind as well as my eyes so that I may grasp it with my hands.

Is it too much to ask for just a piece of my dream? Am I asking in vain for a clear picture of what it is I must do? I am searching for the answers, trying to find my way, but I don't have a clue. Images dance before my eyes. I try to focus to make the images sharper in my mind. Frustrated that the pictures are so close but still unclear.
