I’ll Teach You to Dream to Choose Beautiful 

An invitation to a doorway of dreams 

An understanding why some choose a lesser door 


I’ll Teach You To Dream (villanelle) 

I’ll teach you to dream if you’ll take my hand
Together we’ll see a realm out of sight
Where all that might be is ours to command
-
It’s time that we free what few understand
A slumbering flame that yearns for the light
I’ll teach you to dream if you’ll take my hand
-
Why drift through a world which others have planned
When we hold the key to all our delight
Where all that might be is ours to command
-
No more tomorrows our hopes to disband
Imagined unreal await to take flight
I’ll teach you to dream if you’ll take my hand
-
Endless excuses so gently remand
Here some unknown fear protects us from fright
Where all that might be is ours to command
-
Here is your moment to sit or to stand
To sit in comfort or worlds to ignite
I’ll teach you to dream if you’ll take my hand
Where all that might be is ours to command


When it comes to dreams, this scene from "Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory" comes to mind: Gene Wilder "Pure Imagination"

Gorillas are often embarrassed by their own reflection in mirrors. Dove, the personal care brand owned by Unilever, did not study gorillas, but rather humans. More specifically, they studied women. With no barriers or explanations before them, women approaching a building were left with only their own impressions and perceptions to guide their decision. These were women in different countries. Before them were doorways marked "average" and "beautiful". 
Find out which they chose and why. "Dove Choose Beautiful | Women all over the world make a choice"
