Alas! When we follow our dreams;
People tend to snort tend to laugh.
Alas! When we follow our dreams;
People tend to crumple up in half.

Hush darling let them speak;
Our heart isn’t theirs to keep.
Wipe the tears on your cheek;
Strive towards the highest peak.

Alas! When we follow our dreams;
Learn to distinguish common allies.
Alas! When we follow our dreams;
Troubles in life help make us wise.

Hush darling let them speak;
Our heart isn’t theirs to keep.
Wipe the tears on your cheek;
Strive towards the highest peak

Alas! When we follow our dreams;
Prone to spite people bemoan.
Alas! When we follow our dreams.
The path to success weaves alone.

Hush darling let them speak;
Our heart isn’t theirs to keep.
Wipe the tears on your cheek;
Strive towards the highest peak.

  1. This is one of my favourite of your poems. The form is strong but does not steal the focus from your subject. I like the juxtaposition of the two voices – one of anxiety and one to soothe the fears.

  2. I love the sense of call and answer – the dialogue between inside their love and the outside world..i think and hope ‘inside’ wins…it’s what truly counts

  3. Hush darling let them speak;
    Our heart isn’t theirs to keep.

    The measure of understanding and affections seem to be very apparent and real. Love these sort of situations! Great lines Sanaa!

  4. People do react and act in certain ways when they see you daring to follow your dreams. Let others say what they want to say, keep your eye on the prize. It’s a great reminder because it’s so easy to be discouraged sometimes.

  5. Indeed, if one has dreams one should follow them without worrying what another person thinks of them. In life it is good to strive toward the highest peak possible & not be deterred by criticism of what is in one’s heart!

  9. Very true Sanaa. Because we are so concerned with what others think, we tend to not follow our dreams which is a very wrong mind set.

    Go and follow your heart. Hold your head up high as we reach for your dreams
