sometimes small and insignificant,
at times grand and imposing,
but all the same defining.
for we only fly as far as we care to dream.
the minds eye our secret weapon,
in the same stroke our greatest liability.
the universe only hands you what you think you can handle,
in cohorts with you as far as you can stretch.
but when we cloud our potential with doubt,
or condense dreams to accommodate reality,
we fail ourselves.
denying the world another glimpse of brilliance,
forfeiting our chance at immortality.
for people die each day
but what they create lives on.
Dreams entertain our sleep
but magnify our daily steps.
that extra touch to makes it right,
the magical quality that creates a path where none dared to tread.
The tool to create or destroy,
the unseen hand in shaping life.
luck is nothing but intention meeting action,
opportunity is a need wrought in absence of talent,
talent bred is the genesis of unlimited opportunities.
Hold on to your gifts
and dare to dream.
for you never know what the horizon holds,
until you flap your wings and dare to soar.
