Where are your dreams?

Why is there emptiness
in your muffled cries?
Where are the dreams
I once saw in your eyes?

Why are you suffocating
pull yourself through
how can you give up
what did you just do?

I didn’t do anything
I thought I did my best
the road I once walked on
slipped from beneath my steps.

I strayed from my path
and I fell to my knees
I thought I lost my trail
but my own path gave up on me.

Maybe the road you took
wasn’t yours to take
if you dared to dream
then don’t you dare break!

Create your own path
and hold the reigns of your road
don’t give up now
when you have a long way to go.

Where are your dreams?

Why are you dreaming?

Why are you dreaming?
What will people say?
Burn away your dreams
or the world will burn you away.

Scorch all your wishes
and lower all your skies
these people will only hurt you
why do you even try?

Drench yourself in doubts
like you always do
you can move mountains
but no one will see this beauty in you.

Maybe, just maybe….
for once….

Let all those mocking voices fade away
you are a dream in itself
why would you let someone else
dictate your way?

Listen to those voices
echoing in your mind
telling you to believe in yourself
because you’re one of a kind.

Don’t stop dreaming

Stop over-thinking

You don’t want to climb the mountains
but you want to kiss the peaks
you’re aiming for the islands
but you’re scared of the sea.

You want to reach the horizon
but you’re fearful of the sky
you’re falling to your insecurities
because you’re too scared to fly.

You don’t know what lies ahead
and you’re afraid of all this load
you want to carry your dreams
but you can’t see the road.

You want to find diamonds
but you won’t look around
you want to plant your victories
but you won’t touch the ground.

You want to win the marathon
but you refuse to run
you want to embrace the light
but you’re afraid of the sun.

You want to see the rainbow
but you don’t like the rain
you want to be strong
but you can’t stand the pain.

You’re dreaming day and night
but you’re still asleep
you want to win so badly
but you aren’t taking that leap.

Love,
you won’t get anywhere
if you stand still like a stone
it’s about time
you come out of your comfort zone.
Yes…
you will fail
and fall
and crash
and burn
but that’s alright
because now it’s your turn
don’t be afraid of a little bruise
how will you ever caress victory
if you’re afraid to lose
today may not make sense
but it all adds up to you
this is all a part of life
so stop over-thinking
and do what you have to do
