Dream Castle

I live in a dream castle
White fence
Green pasture
Lavender yellow and crimson
Spread here and there
Colourful is the life I see
A lonely road travels far away
Where it leads to, I venture not
This castle I abandon not
In love with it
I recreate it again and again
Admiring every corner
I paint it with my desire
Some trespasser walks in
And mocks at it
Its a lifeless castle, he said
My dreams do shatter
I abandoned my castle
Orphaned, it lost its sheen
Again a trespasser walks by
He finds beauty in every corner
Again my dream castle wakes up
Once again, I see it smile
I knew then,
opinions – positive or negative
your dream castle is your best
now and forever
Break not it yourself
For its always yours
Keep rejuvenating with varied hues
Put your heart in it
For some day,
akin a caterpillar it would get wings
flying high in the real blue world
Break not thy dream castle
