a dream

a dream is just a dream

it is only as believable as you want it to seem

make it real and you will see

dreams are as lively as you want them to be


a heart is only a heart

it is only beating for a start

make it love and it will grow a new part

hearts are as meaningful as one's own art


a pen is just a pen

it is only writing to mend

make it think and it will bend

pens are as needed as 100 letters to send


a word is just a word

it is only said to liven up this world

make it worthwhile or it will seem absurd

words are as beautiful as a song bird
