At some point, maybe we accept that the dream has become nightmare.
We tell ourselves the reality is better.
We convince ourselves it’s better that we never dream at all.

But the strongest of us, the most determined of us, we hold on to the dream.
Or we find ourselves faced with a fresh dream we never considered.
We awake to find ourselves…against all odds…feeling hopeful.

And if we’re lucky, we realize…in the face of everything, in the face of life…
The true dream…is being able to dream at all.
