The voices

All my life I've heard the voices say you can't do this and you can't do that.
All my life I've been shut away in a dark place by the voices telling me to give up.
All my life I heard the voices say you can't succeed you won't.
But I still dream and hope and wish and pray that someday I'll rise above everything and conquer my dreams of becoming someone,something.
Not just a name in the crowd,but a name that stands out.
That shines brighter than the first star in the night sky.
Who says I can't dream.
Who says I can't be the person I strive to be.
No one does.
The voices are unclear now.
Their silence is justified by my well being and confidence in life.
New doors are opening,old doors are closing.
Shutting on the voices who told me to give up.
I will never give up.
As long as my heart is still beating,my eyes still see, and my voice is still heard.
I will be unstoppable.
A force of love,heart,and strength.
My voice will be louder than the others.
My voice shall overcome defeat.
My voice will be heard above all others.
