I’ve got a hidden dream,
Something yearning, burning inside me.
I want to let it out,
To chase it, to follow where it leads.
But can’t ‘cause I’m scared--
Scared it will outrun my feeble step.

Someone once said to me,
What is life without a little love?
What’s the point of living,
If you don’t love the life you live?

So I say, live fearlessly.
Put one foot in front of the other,
Not afraid of what’s ahead.
Follow your heart,
Follow your love.
And soon you’ll be running,
Chasing down those dreams.

The city lights call to me,
London, L.A., and New York City.
That’s where life happens,
That’s where I know I’ll feel alive.
And that’s where I’ll go
To make my hidden dream come to life.

Someone once said to me,
What’s life without a little love?
What’s the point of living,
If you don’t love the life you live?

So I say, live fearlessly.
Put one foot in front of the other,
Not afraid of what’s ahead.
Follow your heart,
Follow your love.
And soon you’ll be running,
Chasing down those dreams.

I’m just a girl with a dream,
But no wings to make it fly.
I’ll need everything I’ve got,
If I want to live my dream.

So I say, live fearlessly.
Put one foot in front of the other,
Not afraid of what’s ahead.
Follow your heart,
Follow your love.
And soon you’ll be running,
Chasing down those dreams.

I’m just a girl with a dream,
Who found her wings to make it soar.

This poem (as usual) is flawless. after reading it, I'm left with a mixture of...oh god what's the word...BRAVERY! and calmness. keep writing, you're amazing!
