    dotsDream My Boy, Dream!dots
    -------------------------------------------


    Dream my boy! Dream!
    Dream to rid of your rote monotony.
    Dream if you dare! Dream to show your guts!
    But never dream for the sake of dreaming.
    For, dreaming is but to take up cudgels against adversity.
    Dream to make your life what you would it to be.
    If you are young and still can’t dream,
    You will be abusing the X’s and Y’s that dreamed of you.
    When you grow up to a man, you can’t dream.
    For, nightmares beset to disturb your sleep.
    And once you become old,
    What will there be to dream about
    Except a long inventory of bungled up promises,
    And life wasted away as a vast desert of time?

    Dream my boy! Dream!
    Dreaming is not yet another exercise of pastime.
    It is trying to draw a blueprint of life.
    It is an epoch to embark upon challenges
    The earlier generations dreaded to dream about.
    Dream about freeing from every shackle,
    About breaking every chain that impedes your progress.
    Let dreaming be such an obsession with you
    That you dream about things no one hitherto ever dreamt of.

    Imagine where you would be
    Had not that caveman dared to dream?
    So, dream my boy! Dream!
    Not anybody can, nor everybody would dream.
    Many shiver in their socks to dream
    And of the few that can,
    most leave their dreams
    At the doorstep of eyelids when they have to buck-up.
    Only a digital few live to translate their dreams,
    This for a bewildered onlooker seems dream living.

    Dreaming is not resignation to fate amidst string of failures.
    On the contrary, it is a defiance of it
    And resilience from the sense of defeat.
    It is ‘bonsai’ing hope and confidence,
    In the fist of determined effort.
    Only those that quarry courage from the deep recesses
    Of their psyche to face every want, battle out every hurdle
    A la Galelio, Socrates, or Copernicus
    Could dare dreaming of exotic things.
    Rest stay content
    inhuming their blessed youth in the hives of time
    Sans identity, sans respect,
    sans any notion of their having ever existed.
