Height of a Dream

image_123986672 (1)Have you ever thought to calculate
the height of a dream?
The equation being something like

# of years spent working toward it
–  # of people who don’t believe in you
x  # of times you have received recognition
in the direction of your dream
height of a dream

And what would you use
to measure your dream?
# of tears
length of laughter
or maybe you measure it
in the silence
dedicated to the cause
or every breath taken
when you thought it’d be
your last.

Any way you measure it
you know
that it can grow
just as it can die
because a dream deferred
is a life left behind.
