Forgotten Dreams(搁浅的梦) 

By Yifei Wang (王怡菲) 

Hello everyone, Im broadcaster Sunny Wang. Certainly, Im very glad to be able to deliver a speech to all of you.

Under the sky, deep in the meadow, a dream, we once swore to follow.

When the boat no longer travels, when the dreams turn into shadow

Where am I?

In the shore where forgotten dreams lay.

This is a poem I once read from a book, which gave me a blow right in the mind. It was funny, however, that what made me remember the most was not the book, but the poem. I still remember that the book tells about a girl who lived in the woods. She had leg diseases and couldnt walk. She made all these paper boats and sat them in the small river in front of her house. Her father was dead years ago, which only left her and her mom to keep life going. The girls name was Lily, and she once told her mom that each paper boat contains a wonderful dream of hers, and someday, she would be able to walk again, and someday, she is going to achieve all her dreams. But then, her mother died from a car crash. At last, despite all the things that were happening, Lily finally remembered her childhood dreams, and discovered thatthe secrets lay in her own forgotten dreams.

Its a really good book, but what I like most is the poem. It shows a thirteen year-old girls dreams, and her determination to survive and start a new life. But it also makes me wonder, Im sure that everyone grows up surrounded by millions of dreams. In fact, some of them might be completely crazy. Thats totally fine. One of my classmates is already twelve, and he still keeps dreaming his life about twenty years later. In his dream, he will have a hundred luxury cars, and he said that by then, he will also have a thousand iphone 10000+. I grew up in dreams. When I was three, I listened to my mother telling me stories about princesses. I always dreamed that someday, I would be a millionaire and live the rest of my life like a princess in the story. When I was six, I dreamed to be a pilot. When I was eight, I wanted to be a translator for the president, and when I am eleven now, I want to be a university professor.

But sometimes, when we are so hooked up by our problems in everyday life, that we totally forget our dreams. A dream is like the sail of our life, and if we lose it, we might lose ourselves as well, because once there is no goal towork for, there is no point of living, just like a boat without a sail. Every day, we might have a new dream. This dream might be small, it might only be one sentence like, I want to achieve full marks on my test. Just write it in your day-planner and work for it. If you study hard enough, surely it would pay off. Now, close your eyes, imagine a place, a silver sky and green clouds. You has just arrived in this strange and unreal place, and now you are on a golden beach. More surprisingly, on the beach, there are no shells, no starfish, no anything you would normally see on a beach. But, instead, there are millions and even zillions of small, carefully folded paper boats. When you pick one up, and hold it still for a while, and stare into it, you will find a dream, and inside it, you will find what a person want to be. If you are lucky enough, maybe you will even find your childhood dreams.

If you want to ask how to find this place, its easy, because it is, and it will always be, right here in our heads. Thank you.

搁浅的梦

文:王怡菲   翻译:老爸

大家好,我是广播员王怡菲。很高兴能和大家分享我的想法。

天空下,草丛中,我们都曾立下誓言,要把梦追寻。

然而,当梦的小舟停滞,梦想变为泡沫,

我们又身在何处?

我们就在梦搁浅的沙滩上。

这是一首我在一本书中读到的一首诗,这首诗让我心中为之一震。有趣的是那本书我印象不怎么深,诗我却记得很牢。书大致是讲住在林子里的一位姑娘,她腿上有疾,无法行走。她就用纸叠成小船,把它们放在门前的小溪里。她父亲已亡故多年,她和妈妈相依为命。女孩的名字叫百合,她对她妈妈说,她叠的每一艘小船都载着她的一个梦想,她梦想有一天她能够行走,她梦想着有一天她所有的梦想都能够实现。然而,接下来,她的妈妈却在一次车祸中遇难。尽管如此,百合并没有忘记她儿时的梦想,并发现每一个梦想里都藏着一个秘密。

书很不错但我更喜欢那首诗,它写出了一位13岁女孩的梦想,写出了她要活下来,开始新的人生征程的决心。我在思考,我们每个人在成长过程中都会做许许多多梦,有些梦可能会完全不着边际。这没啥不好的呀。我的一位同学12岁了,他梦想12年后他的生活:要拥有100辆豪车,还要有一千部Iphone10000 plus。我也是在梦中长大的。三岁时,我听了妈妈给我讲公主故事,我就总梦想着,有一天我会成为一个百万富翁,像故事里的公主那样度过一生。六岁时,我梦想成为一名飞行员。八岁时,我的梦想是为总统当翻译。现在我11岁了,我想要成为一名大学教授。

但有时,为生活中的烦恼所困,我们会把我们的梦想忘得一干二净梦想就像生命之帆一旦失去我们就会迷失自我因为没有了生活目标活着也就没有了意义就像是一艘没有帆的小舟每天我们会有新的梦想,它可能微不足道,可能只是“我这次考试要拿满分”这样一句话。那就把它写在每日计划里,并付诸实施。只要你努力学习,就会有收获。好吧,现在请大家闭上眼睛,想象有这么一个地方,天是银色的,云是绿色的。你刚刚到这个奇怪得不真实的地方,现在就站在金色的沙滩上。更为奇怪的是,这个沙滩上没有贝壳,没有海星,没有你通常在海滩上看到的一切。相反,沙滩上是数以百万计数不胜数的小纸船,折叠得很精巧。你捡起一艘小纸船,静静地拿着它,盯着它看,就会发现一个梦。循着梦,你会发现某个人想要成为怎样的人。如果你足够幸运,你也许会看到你儿时的梦呢。

哪有这样的地方?告诉你吧,很容易找到的,因为它就在,也永远在,我们的心中。谢谢大家!
