The fulfillment of a long-anticipated dream
Like a first kiss, learning to drive, graduation, or having a child
Is a powerful concoction of emotions
Joy, dread, satisfaction, and relief
Which, when properly blended, is a sweet elixir
To be sipped over the years hence.
The fond recall of such an achievement may be hazy
From the slight inebriation of the soul it produces.
While becoming drunk off of past success is ill advised,
A simple preventative is available.
New dreams are plentiful, potent, and
For souls that thrive, inevitable.
