Chest of Dreams

Updated on February 20, 2018

This was written for my closest friend's college graduation (2001). Though my writing has improved, I still hold all of my poems near and dear to my heart. Especially when written for a loved one.

Life is a chest of dreams

And it's bursting at the seams

For every thought we make

and every step we take


Though at times the chest is locked

And dreams seem out of reach

Other times it's open

And it yields what we beseech


So kneel beside your chest of dreams

And sift through all your jewels

For now you're at a crossroad

Having earned all of your tools


Be sure to pick the largest one

That glitters like the stars

Hold it tight and don't let go

For it will take you far


Always keep that treasure chest

Close and by your side

And always feel excitement

Each time you reach inside
