Just A Dream
Should I laugh or should I cry?
Should I feel low or high?
I am responsible for my own happiness.
I came into the world a pauper, and would one day leave the same
But I am content with what I am but hope to someday make a name.
A name that would recognize me and would gain me commendable fame.
I do not yearn for gold or silver, nor treasures immeasurable
I only seek the honor I deserve.
I do not seek to be a dame
All I ask for is just one chance to follow my heart
And fulfill my dreams,
I am sure I would not disgrace the chance.
They say success is a matter of luck, not everyone succeeds,
I say luck is just a word, perseverance does it.
Take a glance at the birds way up high,
I’ve always dreamt of chasing them just while they fly.
But will I be even able to reach so high?
I sometimes wish to fly because it’s a wonderful thing to do,
But then I take a step behind, I’m afraid of being pulled back.
I know that no mortal can ever be perfect,
But can’t the practice of being one, make me perfect?
I know it might take me ages to gain what I aim for
And could even lose it all in a jiffy,
But that’s where I need to possess a joyous spirit
And risk to start from null.
I could allow myself to be led but never to be ruled
I have now learnt a priceless lesson,
I am responsible for my own happiness
My happiness does not depend on what could influence me
But that which I let myself to be influenced by.
I wish not for the moon or stars
But just the little trust and confidence
That I can and I will achieve that which I must…
