DO I DARE?

Give me a moment for I don't ask for more, to comprehend this world before me,
Sometimes I cower in fear and sometimes I revel in its beauty,
But what is my calling?
My heart is speaking a language different than that of my mind,
There is something nagging inside me,
Pulling me, demanding my attention,
But why do I see darkness everywhere?
The main question is..do I dare?
Do I dare to follow my heart and stand all alone?
The world stands before me,
But I stand staring at it uncomprehendingly,
People move by, push me away,
There is a mad rush you know,
People have to earn a living,
But are they living??
I've grown up to see that money means everything and fame is what people desire,
Am I not normal to want love more than anything else?
Am I not normal for dreaming dreams that are too romantic in nature?
Give me a moment to comprehend where I live,
For what I see makes no sense to me.
But do I dare to stand alone?

Most definitely Deboshree! Oh, you write the most beautiful things. All the feelings you write about here I feel myself. I believe many of us feel these things. The key is to act and follow our dreams, isn't it. It is always a challenge.

Beautiful post! Thank you for this! I came to wish you a Happy American Thanksgiving and here you have given me a gift :)

Hugs and Love to You!

Dear Deboshree, thanks for stopping by :) I feel you here, even at my age my heart calls daily for my destiny. It is a nagging, unrelenting feeling that nibbles on my soul. So it doesn't matter what age, culture you are; the heart calleth. The only one that can answer the question, "Do I dare?" is you. Who cares if people laugh or tell you to get a real job. Look at all the trailblazers (the ones who stood alone) over the centuries: Einstein, Van Gogh, Sir Isaac Newton, Poe, Gandhi and soooo many others who answered the inner call.

People who tell you to face reality are the ones who are simply existing not truly living.

Be who you are meant to be, Deboshree. Sometimes that means exploring and taking chances.
