I’m haunted by these dreams
These visions of me winning
Of saying the words I’ve never said
Of singing the notes you’ve never heard
The lyrics you’ve never read
These dreams of hitting that high point
You knew I always could
But I was too scared to do.
I want to live among that rich and famous
Yet my brain tells me I cant,
My heart is too scared to let me fail.
So what do I do when my spirit is berating me?
For not setting it free
From the shackles my mind created
Within this world of tragedy?
As time ticks away
The reflection in the mirror becomes harder to face.
And these sleepless nights are awoken with flashing lights.
And me belting on a stage
With spectators shouting at me
Some with praises, others with hatred.
Yet, all I can remember is that I wasn't afraid.
And it hits me. Make this reality,
So these dreams can stop haunting me.
And the reflections in the mirror will stop staring at me with
Dark circles and tears streaming down my cheeks.
The headaches can stop and my heart will be light again.
Taking the first step is daunting.
Criticism is harsh.
Yet, the screams in my soul are becoming louder
Than the taunting screams in my dreams.
Follow your dreams
Or they will haunt you.
