Are you living your dream?



It’s an odd question, because as far as I can remember,
I’ve never had a passion, Never had a dream,
Other than the wish to survive this rough road of mine,

As far as I can remember, the only dream I had was to be loved,
And accepted by the people who would love me enough to keep me,
As I grew older, my only worry was to make enough money to cover utilities

I remember dreaming about high school and college,
And thinking how would I afford going to college,
Not even daring to think how much would university cost,

But as far as I can remember, I knew that I wanted to go there,
Wanted to walk in that big building and learn about amazing “stuff”
I just knew that’s where I wanted to land, because education was my way out,

And I knew this at a very young age, although I couldn’t figure out the details,
I just knew…

As I grew older and life changed in ways I couldn’t believe,
I didn’t realize that “my dream” was materializing itself,


So today, when I think of it, what is my dream?
Do I even have one, have I ever dreamt of anything,
Well I am living it, I went to college, and figured it out,
And I’m about to graduate from University,

So am I living my dream? I sure am, and it’s better than I ever imagined
