Chasing Dreams (Guest Post)

What do I want?

The question that sounds more like taunt!

It sounds so simple, but it gives me anxiety,

I’m lost and indecisive, but I blame society,

Is everything I want the same as what I need?

If I let myself be selfish, would the others call it greed?

My desires are not confined,

They’re free and undefined,

Does it even matter what the heart may yearn?

Every dream is fleeting, destined to crash and burn,

The excitement lies in the chase,

It’s all over once you’ve won the race,

You fall into the pursuit of something new,

Just look behind at all the things you outgrew,

Perhaps that’s the definition of being alive,

If we don’t move on, we cannot thrive,

At the end of the day, it’s about a clear conscience,

The feeling of being in control and self-reliance,

May covets shall vary with the circumstances and time,

Wanting to live your best life is no crime,

What I long for today might seem inane tomorrow,

The love of my life could become my sorrow,

When life gives lemons, I want to be brave,

I don’t want to carry any regrets to my grave,

I chase the dream of a happily ever after,

Where pain dies beneath the sound of laughter,

A content heart and a mind at ease,

A lust for life that doesn’t cease.

    About Chasing Dreams Dear

    Ava And So True Often

    We May Look


    And Find

    Aims That Are
    No Where to Be
    Found in the CuLTuRE

    We aRe Spoon Fed From

    Birth And True it Takes A Certain

    Kind of Courage to Break Out And

    Away From Tradition of Group Think

    To Risk Outcast Status Oh Yet to Be

    Free to Dance

    And Sing

    A Breath

    So Released

    Indeed the Joy
    Becomes The Doing

    Even if There Is No

    One Yet the me of me

    LiGHTinG mY World Up Free
    Fortunately For me my Wife
    Doesn’t Mind Riding With me
    True As This Magic Carpet Often
    Flies With

    No Rules

    Of Others

    mY FRiEnD…

    Yet Still With Effortless
    Ease in Autotelic Flow

    Most Always Tween the
    Sweet Spot of Apathy and
    Anxiety Constantly Increasing

    Human Potentials Now Fully

    Across the Life Span Now For Real..:)
