Defiance For A Dream

Defiance For A Dream

A Poem by Taylor Williams
"

For everyone who's been told they couldn't do something

"
They always said
i would never be anything, but they left my book unread
the book that is my destiny
i promise i will make them see
that they were wrong
and no matter what happens, i will always stand my ground
because I've given everything
every part of my whole being

for this dream that, i wont give up
you say ill fail, as i sing your eulogy 
if you don't have faith in me
then why should i let you breathe?
i hope you choke on
these words of failure that
you keep on throwing my way
ill fight them every day
when that day comes
and im on top of the world
i will look down just so
that i can watch you drown

My mind is set
on becoming the thing you said i could not be
because you are the faithless fool
no i will never be like you
yeah my heart is strong
it'll beat forever for this dream that i wont let sleep
you know that this is all i have
and i will give it all for this

for this dream that, i wont give up
you say ill fail, as i sing your eulogy
if you don't have faith in me
then why should i let you breathe?
i hope you choke on
these words of failure that
you keep on throwing my way
ill fight them every day
when that day comes
and im on top of the world
i will look down just so
that i can watch you drown

in the flood of my victory
you're drowning, you scream for me
but i turn my head, and just walk away
how does it feel, to be so wrong
'cause i will not fail
i will prevail
ill prove you wrong
ill stand up
strong

Ahh so this is a song, it's very...catchy?haha. The lyrics itself reminded me of the band Skillet's work for some reason, or maybe papa roach. I can't quite place my finger on it, but the mood is quite familiar.Anyway! Very nicely done, don't listen to their words- You can do whatever you want, and still be happy.
