Dare to Dream
Listen to poem:
What would you do if you knew you can't fail?
How vastly each ocean of life would you sail?
So many places and things to be seen
limited only by daring to dream.
What reasons could be of the things we conceive
that they're not the very same things we achieve?
Know that you can, though some say you shouldn't.
No fear that you'd fail till you thought that you couldn't!
Funny the choices in life that we make.
We err on the side that is cautious and safe.
All the while dreaming where we'd rather be,
searching for something that makes us feel free.
How many chances have passed when you could've,
only to find yourself wishing you would've?
The delusion of youth is that time's on your side
but nobody knows just how long we ride.
