Our dreams are held back by reality. Never lose sight of your dreams. When you close your eyes, everything you see if just as important as real life. Those dreams remind you of the freedom you could have if you really wanted it. You may not to be able to fly without wings, but that doesn’t stop you from flying and reaching for the stars. Dreams are there to remind us of how fun it is to put reality on the shelf and enjoy the wild, crazy, untouched sides of life. We can be who we want, when we want. That doesn’t change in reality. Your dreams are reaching out to you. If you ignore them, you will be stuck in a reality base world with no room for anything but what the eye’s see. What’s more important, is the stories you see when your eyes are closed. Every dream is a short story, a vivid showing of what could be or what has already been. Open your eyes and keep your dreams alive.
I have falling down. Looking at the sky from the ground. Nobody can see me. I’m not even there to them.They walk over me as I were a doormat. Wipe their feet and move on. They can’t tell that I’m hurt. They cannot see these chains holding me down. I am constricted by the vines of sin. My soul seeks the darker side of life. I am down and I am alone. Looking up at the stars at night, I imagine being free, walking amongst the crowd, smiling, staring at the sun. I could rule the world, my family and I, hand in hand, eyes on the sky. With no restraints, and no fears, I would be free, lifted from the ground, forever and now.
I just want to know … Is this hard work going to pay off or is everything going to waste ?
I just want to know … Is love really worth the pain or am I a fool lost in my own emotions ?
I just want to know … Is happiness in my future or should I get used to being down ?
I just want to know … Does my life have meaning or am I living just to die ?
I just want to know … Is there a Heaven or are we praying to an empty sky ?
I just want to know … Can anyone answer these questions or is this an endless search for answers ?
One thing I cannot and will not ever understand is how humans want to fit this certain mold. The American dream is what we all want right? To be married, hand in hand with your spouses looking out the window at that tire swing. Those images of “normal” have been pumped into our minds by our family, our friends, and the media, for a very long time now. I’m personally not one of those people who settle for normal. I want to live my life beyond “normal”. Work, marriage, kids, those things may happen no matter what type of life you lead. It’s also important not to lose sight of all else that matters to you. Your family may come first, but at one point they didn’t. Never lose sight of what came first when it was just you and your dreams.
Some say that everything happens for a reason. That may be true but you have to make some of those things happen. If you forget what it is you want, then you’ll just end up accepting whatever it is you get. Don’t just accept anything, make things happen for yourself. Every person forgets when they were this young and ambitious person before they were married or had kids or had to work overtime. You still are that person, you just have to dig deep to find him along with everything else you might have lost. If you have dreams, never stop chasing them, because if you lose them, you’ll just end up looking for them all over again.
