Dreams Deferred

black and white image of a woman swinging from a tree

I’m on a bus
It’s cloudy and rainy outside
The weather matches my mood
Gloomy and just kind of blah

A lot of days I find myself waiting for the other shoe to drop
Feeling neither here nor there
They say no news is good news
Well no news for too long makes me nervous

I am a roller coaster
Sometimes up, sometimes down
Reminiscent of my childhood
Waiting for the other shoe to drop

I’m listening to a song from my high school days
Cheers 2 U” by Playa
And I remember the dreams of my childhood
And the new dreams that I’ve discovered

I’ve heard it said that “hope deferred makes the heart sick”
And “Worshiping the dream more than the Dream-Giver makes the dream an idol”

I have dreams that at times seem like God has forgotten about
Or doesn’t care to remember
Or has once again said “No”
Or has once again said “Wait”

Where do you place your hope?

If the dream fails is all hope gone?

A shattered marriage, a failed career and everything in between.

I smile at the rain.
My hope is in the Dream-Giver. 🙂
