Soul (Remix #1)

I slept and dreamt that I was a flower,
born to blossom; bloom to perish.

I awoke and saw that I was a weed,
I weeded and found that I was the soil.


Remix of:

Born to blossom; bloom to perish.
From song ‘What You Waiting For’ by GWEN STEFANI

I slept and dreamed that life was joy,
I awoke and saw that life was duty,
I acted, and behold duty was joy.
Quote ascribed to RABINDRANATH TAGORE

I slept, and dreamed that life was Beauty;
I woke, and found that life was Duty.
Was thy dream then a shadowy lie?
Toil on, sad heart, courageously,
And thou shalt find thy dream to be
A noonday light and truth to thee.
Poem by ELLEN STURGIS HOOPER
