Commitments often tend to lose shape when encountered with challenges.
Some dreams simply take courage
Courage of being dreamt like a mirage.
Most require the sense of possibility
The choice of a lifetime as liability.
Nearly all are ones that require dedication
Calculation from foundation to fruition.
Certain just require some sincerity
To be lived with utmost integrity.
Now how does one find out?
Mostly all of us live in this delusion of self-doubt.
But do you know? This one is easier to do than say
Yes, I repeat, it’s easier to follow than to stay.
To make this dream not a part but life itself
To be impassioned by it as oneself.
To practice it with truth and repeat
Repeat until it’s a skill too concrete.
I know you don’t believe my cliched word today
But believe in yourself in a sort of way
That when you try to practice your dream tomorrow
There shouldn’t be hurt, pain or sorrow.
Just that contentment of moving ahead with pride
As people look at you and say, “They’re living what we tried.”
