Work For Dreams

Hopes and dreams can lift you up
and help you reach the sky,
or leave you parched, an empty cup,
consumed by pretty lies.
You're beautiful the way you are
when you nourish yourself,
when hopes and dreams aren't kept on stars,
or bottled on your shelf.
They act like you can buy the life
you want through pills and frills,
making earnings a noble strife
and shackling your free will.
The life you're told to wish you had
won't make you the best you -
Hopes and dreams are not a fad
and with work can come true.
