Painting Dreams

Image Source: Magpie Tales

The only thing that keeps me going
Is my passion to pursue my dream
I know no one shall stand by my side
But I shall now be my own team

Everything is tough at the start
Its all about working hard
People will try to mess it up for me
I need to keep my own guard

Backstabbers are a plenty here
They all are praying for me to fail
What they don't realize is that
Now I have learnt how to sail

Its easy to quit and walk away
But I want to hold on and try
Years later I don't want to think about it
And sit disappointed and cry

My dreams motivate me enough
I have the strength to walk towards it
Day by day I'm getting closer
My passion now is forever lit

I shall not give up until I get there
I am motivated by my own heart
Quitting a high paying job today
I'm all set to move into the field of art

I shall paint my dreams all bright
The colors shall never get shorter
I shall pass through fire for this
Or even walk through deep water
