Shades of gray can't survive the night
and fishing nets can't capture light.
But a dream my friend can out fox the hounds
for when you set no limits they have no bounds.
So when you picture grays amongst the black
or you see the end and you can't turn back.
Remember to dream of impossible things
and enjoy my friend the hope this brings.

The Impossible Dream
When I was a teenager I loved the music from "Don Quixote" from the play; "Man Of La Mancha", particularly the song; THE IMPOSSIBLE DREAM --I think that is what it was called. Loved the inspirational feeling it gave me. Your poem gave me that same kind of feeling and reminded me of that time long ago. Thanks for posting this!


Just sharing the lyrics of the song with you here:


To dream ... the impossible dream ...
To fight ... the unbeatable foe ...
To bear ... with unbearable sorrow ...
To run ... where the brave dare not go ...
To right ... the unrightable wrong ...
To love ... pure and chaste from afar ...
To try ... when your arms are too weary ...
To reach ... the unreachable star ...

This is my quest, to follow that star ...
No matter how hopeless, no matter how far ...
To fight for the right, without question or pause ...
To be willing to march into Hell, for a Heavenly cause ...

And I know if I'll only be true, to this glorious quest,
That my heart will lie will lie peaceful and calm,
when I'm laid to my rest ...
And the world will be better for this:
That one man, scorned and covered with scars,
Still strove, with his last ounce of courage,
To reach ... the unreachable star ..."
