“Dive for Dreams” – E.E. Cummings

This is a favorite poem of mine. I can never seem to find it available to read in full on the web, so I thought I’d share it. 

 

dive for dreams
or a slogan may topple you
(trees are their roots
and wind is wind)

 trust your heart 
if the seas catch fire 
(and live by love 
though the stars walk backward)

 honor the past
but welcome the future
(and dance your death
away at this wedding)

 never mind a world
with its villains or heroes
(for god likes girls
and tomorrow and the earth)

I love to read, watch tv, write, play sports, listen to music. I'm pretty much an average person. I have an insanely large family, but I love them all. I started this blog to get me back into the habit of writing everyday which I stopped doing for many different reasons. I do try to live up to what I tell people and what I project into the world. I can't promise to be interesting, funny, or, yes, even creative, but here we go anyway.
