Our Fears vs. Dreams
What’s your biggest fear?
What’s your greatest dream?
Perhaps these two are not so different.
Maybe they make up who we are.
When asked these questions, what comes to mind?
Well, let’s deal with fears to start
It can be described as a distress from anything
That makes you worried, anxious or afraid.
Sometimes to avoid these emotions you put up walls
To shield yourself, and it becomes your barricade.
A number may have to face their fears
As they live their life day to day,
While others aren’t as constantly reminded
But it’s still scares them either way.
My main fear would be losing loved ones
And having to face more pain that follows.
I can’t imagine the real suffering,
As I still hurt without meeting my past uncle.
A part of me also fears the future
For all that life has in store,
But we have to live in the present
So for now it’s on a mild ignore
Opposing our fears lie our dreams.
They can be described as desires
Or visions of fantasies we imagine,
And tend to ache for these within our souls.
However our dreams tend to change
Depending on the person, place or time.
And sometimes the things we say we want
Don’t reflect our hidden feelings inside.
My greatest dreams, depend
On which part of my life I’m talking about.
And in sum those dreams
Are the root where pride will sprout.
The first of three main dreams:
Continue staying clean from self-mutilation,
Even though there are times I wish
I could relive those painful durations.
Secondly, the life he’s helped me find
Is better than I could have ever imagined
And to spend the rest of my days with him,
As his wife, is something I long for and desire.
And at lastly, there’s my career,
In which the ideal job plays its role.
Always has radio been the way I’ve wanted my earnings
And college is allowing it to unroll.
But no matter what each of us live for
Whether we confront our dreams and fears
I want you always to remember you’re not alone
No matter how lonesome it may seem
