Poem: Elusive Dreams | Tope Akintayo

how do you make dreams stick

how do you make dreams
transcend vulnerability
resistant to weariness
unperturbed by economy
unresponsive to myths

how do you guard
childhood fantasies through
harsh weather of adulthood

when the heat of reality
tears your will apart,
how do you keep it from
slipping off your grip

when you are finally awaken
from childhood slumber,
how do you ensure your
dream does not evaporate
into the vacuum of age
