Pursue Your Dreams
Poet: Julie Hebert, ©2011
I've always known,
How great you are.
I just didn't realize,
How bizarre you are.
I say this in,
A very good way,
You're so creative,
I have to say.
You have potential,
To pursue your dreams.
Now get out there,
And explore your schemes.
Until you try,
You'll never know.
Life's too short,
To not control your show!
We all have dreams and aspirations. But, many people do not follow
their dreams, they stay in jobs they hate, they never reach their full
potential because they do not pursue their dreams. The Poet is trying
to encourage you to go after dreams, to make them a reality! Don't wait
until it is to late. Do not be one of those people who say, I wonder what would
have happened if I had . . .
The Things That Haven't Been Done Before
Poet Edgar A. Guest
The things that haven't been done before,
Those are the things to try;
Columbus dreamed of an unknown shore
At the rim of the far-flung sky,
And his heart was bold and his faith was strong
As he ventured in dangers new,
And he paid no heed to the jeering throng
Or the fears of the doubting crew.
The many will follow the beaten track
With guideposts on the way.
They live and have lived for ages back
With a chart for every day.
Someone has told them it's safe to go
On the road he has traveled o'er,
And all that they ever strive to know
Are the things that were known before.
A few strike out without map or chart,
Where never a man has been,
From the beaten path they draw apart
To see what no man has seen.
There are deeds they hunger alone to do;
Though battered and bruised and sore,
They blaze the path for the many, who
Do nothing not done before.
The things that haven't been done before
Are the tasks worthwhile today;
Are you one of the flock that follows, or
Are you one that shall lead the way?
Are you one of the timid souls that quail
At the jeers of a doubting crew,
Or dare you, whether you win or fail,
Strike out for a goal that's new?
Your life has purpose.
Your story is important.
Your dreams count.
Your voice matters.
You were born to make an impact.
Much of the uniqueness of human beings lies in their ability to adapt to a wide range of environments.
David Haines, An Introduction to Sociocultural Anthropology
