What it means to chase a dream

The long breath of responsibility
upon the backs of the squalid
the young, the starving, the dreamers
can only last until their passion is fully forsaken
to follow the advice of others

The luck of the draw
rears its generous head
into the minds of few
the others scrambling
to connect the dots
to make ends meet
juggling responsibility and commitment
to follow a calling
they know to be true

The impractical and impossible of yesterday
are the realities of today
the failures of yesteryear
are the successes of tomorrow

Dreams are never fully owned or borrowed
but to be pursued through
on the paths of happiness and sorrows
dreams are the fuel of hopes and ambition
built to defy tradition
with the courage to live life in one’s own rendition
