Within Your Heart

Within you,
a vast ocean of possibilities,
endless,
filled with doubts and unanswered questions.
Which way should I go ?
Which road should I take?
It whispers in your ear,
like the tides, highs and lows.
I tell you
reach deep inside,
and if you follow your heart
you could never be wrong.
It takes courage
to follow a dream.
Sometimes it takes courage
to stay where you are needed.
Do not trade your life,
for the life someone else dreams for you.
Dream with courage,
love with might,
when you choose what path matters to your soul,
passion will find you,
all the days of your life.

  2. This is lovely, and just what I needed to read. Following dreams is scary and not following them is scary (and depressing) too.

  32. Hey there, I have to say, this poem spoke to me in a big way!

    "It takes courage
    to follow a dream.
    Sometimes it takes courage

    Do not trade your life,"
