“Dream big” they say
as if limits did not exist
except for the disappointment when reality hits.
That money controls,
so much of our life
And those “big dreams” remain a figment
of our imaginative life
Being better unsaid
and only dreamt of at night.
Instead of sounding crazy,
to the realists in life.
Now the battle of pessimism and optimism
begins to strike.
What is pessimistic
about being a realist in life?
Whereas the hope and eager
of the optimistic is clear;
Are those “big dreamers” ready
for the criticism they’ll feel?
I’m not speaking about the “normal”
I’m talking about the one’s whose dreams are dreams
because of the stretch to achieve them.
But that the dreams that are dreamt
are meant to be followed,
Telling our kids to dream big,
to have something to work toward
that’s not in sight now.
So that when our big dreams come true,
all that will be able to be said is “Thank you.”
Because the social means of life,
will not determine the dreaming and achieving
of what will be done in my kids life.
Therefore I’ll say again,
and believe it myself too:
There’s a world that’s waiting for you.
