Still Dreaming


 Still Dreaming

I woke up excited

my spirit still ignited
aligned my passion with purpose now my dreams are invited.
I'm moved by the minutes
amazed by the hours
held captive by living this life we call ours.
Held hostage by my hopes
and shackled to my dreams
my wishes turned to plans
now my plans have turned to schemes.
No daydreamer am I
for simple wishing cannot thrive.
One must act and one must love
for lifelong dreams to stay alive.
One must risk it all and chance the fall
lose it all to gain it all
overcome the circumstance of happenstance
by standing tall.
My light is still beaming
my eyes bright and gleaming.
I'm humbled and hopeful
yet happy still dreaming.
