A Pessimist's Poem- Nothing I Dreamed Came True

Nothing I dreamed came true-
The night did not answer me either-
I was alone with my lost thoughts
And my silent memories-
And I tried to dream again
But life had been so long
And now would be over
Before I could recognize it again-
And the dreams had not come true
They have not come true-
And I stand at the end of who I am
And\ look at the night I am going into
And think whether I am afraid or not-
Nothing I dream will come true
On the other side either.

I like your frankness and it should not be called as pessimism, as it has happened in most of our life! still we are asked to dream! These people really want us to realize and go through what they have felt!
