Be Kind to the Dreamers

Be benevolent to the naive ones

Who take longer to fully internalize

The common sense of harsher realities

Their softer hearts cannot materialize.

Be kind to the ones who believe the best

Seeing hope in cynicism’s hopeless wake

Unaware that they wear rose-colored glasses

Soon enough their consciousness will awake

To the black-and-white world of callousness

To the actions that betray the words

To the knowing that comes from the sting of loss

To the unpredictability life incurs.

Be mindful of the ones who wistfully dream

It won’t be long before they recognize the truth

That in a world strewn with sunsets on summer nights

There are broken hearts and catastrophes too.
