    MangaHelpers Art Contest Week 27-28 ~ Poems & Lyrics - Dream!

    MangaHelpers Art Contest Week 27-28 ~ Poems & Lyrics - Dream!




    This fortnight's art contest category is Poems & Lyrics with the theme set as Dream, as suggested by Akia999. "Dream" is a vast concept and people can express themselves about it in many ways. Here goes a sample:

    Quote Originally Posted by The Impossible Dream
    To dream the impossible dream,
    to fight the unbeatable foe,
    to bear with unbearable sorrow,
    to run where the brave dare not go.

    To right the unrightable wrong,
    to love pure and chaste from afar,
    to try when your arms are too weary,
    to reach the unreachable star.

    This is my quest,
    to follow that star --
    no matter how hopeless,
    no matter how far.

    To fight for the right
    without question or pause,
    to be willing to march into hell for a
    heavenly cause.

    And I know if I'll only be true to this
    glorious quest
    that my heart will be peaceful and calm
    when I'm laid to my rest.

    And the world will be better for this,
    that one man scorned and covered with scars
    still strove with his last ounce of courage.
    To reach the unreachable stars.

    Dreams - "To Have You" by FaustXIII

    It's hard to have a slumber,
    Especially when all you can get is a nightmare.
    It's hard to fight in the darkness,
    When your only weapon is consciousness
    It's hard to risk everything on what you see,
    And failed to recognize the reality.

    I sleep because I want to dream,
    Dream about you or the triumph of my favorite team.
    Interact to those who passed away,
    Or just see unexpected things and play.

    I don't care on what they say
    To be with you is what I always pray.
    And in my dreams it was granted
    To be with you my beloved.

    Dreams - "Unconscious Memories" by RezzieThaRapper

    Love to be awake when I'm sleeping
    My mind imagines many creatures
    I could die but not meet the reaper
    Have fun with my inner demons

    Whether it becomes something that makes me awake in panic
    I'll withstand it, because the next one might be good...

    In your dream the girl of your dreams is with you
    Act fairly fast though, you might awaken before she kiss you
    Or she'll disappear and you'll start... falling frantic
    Off a cliff, forever and ever like the earth was imagined

    Whether it becomes something that makes me awake in panic
    I'll withstand it, because the next one might be good...

    So as my reverse insomnia begins again this night
    I imagine I'm good looking up at evil ready to fight
    Standing here with my Idols, Goku & Luffy
    In the land of the brain that I enter when my eyes are droopy

    Looking like something out of a fantasy movie crafted under the influence
    Maybe shouldn't ate that extra candybar before I started snoozing
    I swear the headphones aren't on and I'm hearing music, and it's changing colors
    Taking shape of my mother saying wake up it's time for supper

    Midday day dreaming becomes something that'll make me panic
    But I'll withstand it, because that dream was rather good
    I have an opinionDon't hate me for it...

    "Dreams" - Unconscious by Asclepius

    The most peaceful place
    Felt like a dream
    I couldn't see a face
    Nor say anything

    It felt so unreal
    So hard to believe
    But i could still feel
    My heart and my breath

    I wanna go back to that place
    In one month or in a few years
    To remember the traces
    Of having no fears

    Discuss the yaoi side of Shingeki no Kyojin and Kuroko no Basket at the Boys Love section.

    "Dream" - Dream Haiku by hatsuharupeace

    A moment vivid,
    Forgotten like a breeze,
    In bed wondering.

    Dreams - "Z⁵" by Akainu

    discover dead dillingers dirty deed
    repeatedly refit reality, reading rocks
    eat extremly edgy escaping escargots
    add another anonymously acclaimed arson
    making monstrously much money mountains
