She smiles as the wind caresses her hair Her eyes shine as she looks up to the sky She holds her teddy bear tightly in her hand Her lips curl into a smile at the thought of life She frowns at the thought of school Her eyes fill with tears smudging her dark eyeliner She pushes her dark dyed hair back Her arms are filled with cuts She’s been told she’s talentless again Her songs are all she has She dropped out of school years ago Her music is her only hope She lies on the ground ready to give up Her phone rings on the couch She picks it up thinking this is the last call she will ever receive We want to sign you to our label She is told by a distant voice She performs for thousands of fans every night Her eyes have got their shine back She walks into her bedroom after kissing her kids goodnight Her husband smiles and takes her into his arms She’s finally truly content as she drifts off to sleep
When I was writing this poem, more than anything, I just wanted to show how quickly and drastically life can change sometimes. Also, sometimes it’s easier to give up on your dreams but the truth is dreams can come true even when you least expect it so you would rather just work really hard and achieve your dreams because that’s what’s important and that is what will give you real happiness. At the end of the day you should always do what you love and believe in yourself even when no one else does.
