Dare to Dream

Dare to Dream

A Poem by Talia

A poem about not giving up

I have a dark and painful past
I'm looking demons in the eye
This standoff can no longer last
They'll be watching me until I die

But I'm not six feet under
I'm not pushing up daisies yet
And now I can't help but wonder
If I'm stuck playing Russian roulette
And I just want to scream
But still, I'll dare to dream

Know they will hear your voice
You'll be passing shadows by
And remember that it's your choice
Whether you stay to fight or fly

Bleed your heart out on the page
But you're not done writing yet
Your brain is trapped within a cage
With a roar they won't forget
And you just want to scream
But still, you'll dare to dream

To think how badly we've been burned
And how deep these cuts and scars go
To think of how our luck has turned
Even though these times feel so slow

And our patience is running thin
But still, we haven't given up yet
Waiting for a new chapter to begin
Getting lost in Romeo and Juliet
And we just want to scream
But still, we'll dare to dream
