Listen close to those who say you can’t.
There’s fear within their voice.
“Be realistic. Don’t dream this dream!”
As if you had a choice.
“You can’t, you shouldn’t, you’ll never achieve
A dream so out in space.
Go get a job, find a nice career
Safe in the corporate embrace.”
Listen to those who stand in your way.
Build your castle from the walls they make.
Listen to all of the things that they say,
But don’t get caught in their wake.
For there’s only one voice that matters at all
And it’s in you, down deep inside.
And if that voice cheers, “Yes you can!”
Then by that voice, abide.
