Dreaming big, reaching for the sky
You could be the next world renowned chef
Or an astronaut going millions of miles high
What about an actress accepting an Oscar for a big role
Or a great composer overcoming being deaf
Maybe you dream of playing for the NFL
Or how about finding a cure for heart disease
You could write a novel that inspires others to write as well
Or how about revolutionizing the tech world
Or a great photographer getting gigs overseas
There’s nothing wrong with wanting to do great things
Or with wanting to make a name for yourself
Along the way, just don’t let conceit color your wings
Don’t lose your soul to the world
Or let your ability to care for others sit on a dusty shelf
When we one day leave this world behind us
What will we be remembered for?
Achievements and titles held are things others may discuss
But would it be worth it if we’d lived a life void of love?
Money, fame, and success are grand, but in life, there’s also so much more.
So dream big and please do reach the sky
Go after those goals, accomplish them all
Just don’t lose sight of life’s joy as your days fly by
When others think of you, will they know how you lived, how you loved?
Will it be a life lived to the fullest, maybe one of the fullest of all?
