A Pair of Wings

I recently read an article (and I wish I could remember what it was) that said that people are more apt to make a dream succeed if they don’t tell anyone about it.  This is the opposite of what I’d heard before, but I thought it was kind of an interesting notion.  It got me thinking…and ultimately writing…this:

Show no one where your dreams reside,
keep them safe and alive inside,
meeting every pulse of your beating heart
which knows, intimately, each and every part
of every hope you’ve dared to give
the will to grow and dream and live.

But to give voice to those things
would be the same as giving them wings
to fly off and up and away,
be it night or day,
to land upon some other’s heart,
and there, perhaps,
stay.
