If my life were like your life

Posted to Poetry

If my life were like your life
Then everything would fall apart.
There is a place
For people like you.
There is a place for people
Like me.
My thoughts would sink an army.
Your dreams might raise it
To newer glories.
Your dreams
Might fire a canon,
Or send a monkey into space,
Or devour insignificance—Hell,
Who knows!
You keep on dreaming your dreams,
And I’ll keep dreaming mine
