Can my dreams come to life?
And all my hopes survive?
Sometimes the doubts creep in low
With persuasion, their seeds they sew
I fear to tread the life-long path
Make mistakes, lose any dignity I hath
I’m looking up and it is so steep
And wishing life was one long sleep
How can I start?
Can I go on?
Can I last?
Sometimes the doubts march in fast
And force my thoughts to visit the past
All the years I have tasted
All the opportunities I have wasted
There’s so much for me to do
If I work day and night
It will only amount to something slight
I know that time is so tight
So can you see my blight?
O’ brokenhearted don’t you know
Potential has no borders
Not arrested by time
Or captured by soldiers
If doubt was a prophet, I would never follow him
If he stood for presidency, I would not elect him
But if he was your father, would you disobey him?
And if fear could be seen, I would surely kill it
If you gave me this promise would you fulfill it?
If regret was a newborn child
I would feed it no milk, I would leave it trialled
But with your words, would I stand reviled?
If laziness was a violent man
On his freedom, I would enforce a ban
But will you arrest him and stop his plan?
The future is made today
Not next year or last May
Let us hold a funeral
and say our prayers on Mr Delay
One of the men of satan's way
Ashes to ashes, dust to dust
With a big smile we say
The unseen enemies are now defeated
None of the wounds can go untreated
I know the work is hard
But be assured there is a peak
Stand up and don’t be so meek
Know, after hardship comes ease
It heals pains and all worries cease
Imagine such a feeling
When you look up and there is no ceiling
Imagine that you were a machine
With a click of a button your past wiped clean
What dreams would you create?
What hopes would you ignite?
With all the tools inside of you
Soon you’ll know, they’re not a few
Now healed you stand
The future in your hand
Start it today
Little by little, your efforts will pay
So remember O' enlightened soul
Take no rest, until you reach your goal
Author's notes: Between many and their dreams are a host of unseen enemies, determined to stop them reaching their goals and maximizing their potential. These unseen enemies have been identified as: self doubt, fear of failure that leads to inactivity, procrastination, laziness, regret, and their allies. The future is like a blank page so don't let the unseen enemies write your story.
