“Dare to live the life you have dreamed for yourself. Go forward and make your dreams come true.”
― Ralph Waldo Emerson
I sit and stare at the blackboard
a blank expression plastered on my face.
My thoughts drown out the teacher’s monotonous voice.
And my mind travels far away,from where my body rests.
I wonder what I’m doing with my life.
Is this where I dreamed to be?
This classroom,a kind of prison
that restrains me from doing
things I love the most.
I wish to travel the world
write,sing and dance
not sit in a place,against my will.
I wish to expand the horizons of my knowledge,
learn new things everyday.
I wish to help the less fortunate,
their smile in return makes life worth living.
Abundant love shower,in their empty lives
so that joy flows and sadness seems almost extinct.
I don’t want money or fame,
or the slightest appreciation.
All I wish is to be content,
with the happiness each day brings.
This is what I wish to do,
this is where I dream to be,
far away from worldly pleasures.
So that each night,as I lay down to sleep
peace fills my heart,
and happiness overflows in my soul.
