Life is a Dream
Where some things go our way
Everything not as it would seem
And none of us get a say

From when we were born
'Till we fall to the grave
Our dreams are torn
And life is what we crave

Dreams are our Life
They give us hope
In our times of strife
So we don't mope

A Dream's life is fake
Our real life is at stake

For the last line, I would say "Our life's at stake" instead of "our life IS at stake," so it flows more. I would change a few lines to flow more, but overall the concept the orginality and creativeness deserves a 5! Again, great job! I love those poems that are short, sweet and to the point. You seem to have a lot of opinions about life today.
