    -------------------------------------------


    Hope is the Dream-Killer.
    By hoping for a dream, you indirectly make it less likely, and depending on how exactly you envision your dream, next to impossible. Mind that you you aren't actually affected the probability of the dream coming true, but rather adding the additional probalistic consideration of whether or not you can predict the future. Assume that you can't, and the question becomes 'can I correctly guess the future,' because if your hope materilizes into a dream, you have guessed the future before it happened. The chances of this are next to nil, although it isn't impossible. The chances of any hope (i
    any eventuality) taking place varies continously from none to certain. Hence when you hope don't get too specific, and let your hope do what it can all alone. To plan your future is to contain it; to hope for your future is to kill it.

      "Hope for the best, but expect the worst". Hope is double edged blade, it might help us survive but it also might lead to our doom. I'm not saying that we shouldn't hope, but we should be careful or we might gut hurt by our hope. Excellent work and a good point of view.

      but without hope you can't dream. cause dreams mostly express wishes you have. that's the difficulty of life. everything has (at least) two sides. what you said is right, but you need hope to dream.
    anyway I like that you made me think. that's what writing, be it poetry or prose, should do. I think too much, too. cause I write sometimes such pieces, too. I like to be philosophical.

      a lot of people are guilty of relying too much on hope. i'm one of them. i've actually been sentence to 3 years of contemplation. you did well with this one. this is one of those rare poems that show the negative undertones in what most of us have considered as an optimistic thought.

      I do a lot of free writing like this. It is a great way to figure out things in life that are hard to put into words. Before you know it you have an essay that explains your personal view of what it is you are explaining.

    I like this. It is very philosophical. Free verse can be a lot of fun.
