Dreams (Poem)

When you find something you love you hold on to it

Even when everyone around you tells you it’s dumb

You try your best to make it work

Spend countless hours a day hammering at it

All your efforts are wasted as you fail

Each time you fail you are ready to give it another go

Time has flown by and it’s been a couple of years

Yet your feet are still in the same spot

Years wasted and not a single step taken

Your heart sinks as you feel regret

You followed your heart and it has failed you

Everyone else has passed you and that kills you

Should you call it quits

You’re already thirty and failed many times

What’s the point in trying anymore

Following your dreams is hard

But giving up in them is even harder

You decide to give it one more shot

As you walk the lonely path

Alone with nothing but a dream
