Go For Your Dreams

Go For Your Dreams

A Chapter by Daisie Vergara (Dhaye)
"

Go for your passion. Reach for your dreams.

"


I am but now a young adult
And may you please consider these
I don't want for an applause
Or recognition to be pleased

I am here at this stage
I'm at the middle of my life
So I just wish my future days
Won't be that sad nor full of strife

The only thing that could help me
Keep away from all the pressures
Is this feeling that I am free-
Freedom in words and in gestures

Have you considered to speak your mind
To tell those things you really feel?
Or you just sit down in one corner
Then cry alone, nothing could heal?

Oh youth, please do remember these
The only thing I could tell you
You have this big chance to be happy
There are much things that you can do

Hands that are skilled in making things
They almost beg, please hear their call
The crafts that only you could make
Now is the time to show them all

Your words that long hidden inside
Could be the best song or story
Or they could be the finest poem
Let them be heard, let the world see

If you can paint, just paint them all
If you can sing, just sing it out
If you can write, just write the words
No matter what, feel free to shout

Life is too short to kill yourself
By doing things you do not want
Or just to grow old with much regrets
That in the end you'll make a rant

Always remember that time's a gem
You should not waste, you should not stop
While still young, go for your dreams
Express yourselves and reach the top!

A poem with a great message. I would say that the most important thing in life is to do what you feel happy doing. And if what you love doing is also what you do for a living than you are in a very lucky, very blessed but very small minority. I hope it is never too late. Very eloquently said Dhaye.

You're welcome. :)
I like what you have said in your author's note as a mean of emphasizing what you spoke about in
the poem. I agree, everyone of us is a poet, is an artist for we celebrate every beautiful thing upon us, and we even transform the ugly into a beautiful mess...Keep going Dhaye...i think this should reach Pax's heart,too...

Dhaye, your poem and even your choice of background music really inspired me today. I was having one of my 'dark moments' and the encouragement of your poem lifted me. I'm certainly not a young person anymore, but i do believe in pursuing your dreams. Well done, and thank you.
