What happens to a dream realized?
Does it fade into the background;
replaced by a longing for more?
Or does it linger in a life filled with joy?
Is it forgotten amidst a quest for survival?
Or held near to our hearts like a first love?
When our dreams become our reality
do we appreciate the life we thought we would never have?
Or do we find fault in how it’s not precisely as we had hoped?
After all, a dream turned into a reality is
a hope turned into a life.
