i hitched my dream… (poem)

i hitched my dream to a falling star

and like the star it didn’t go far

i hitched my dream to a growing tree

it grew so tall but was not free

i hitched my dream to a free wild bird

it soared up high but was not heard

i freed my dream, let loose its reins

it shouts, it soars, it grows without restraint.
